Use of brain?

To Produce Adaptable and Complex movement
Take the example of the Koala Bear(an iconic Australian animal). In the past, it had a much bigger brain but once it adapted its digestive system to derive all the energy it needs from Eucalyptus leaves, it did not have to move as much, less movement meant less brain activity and its brain shrunk.
LESS MOVEMENT => LESS BRAIN ACTIVITY
