It isn't clear to me that selection on brainpower is less today than it used to be. Seems to me that selection pressure might have been stronger on other things than brains before - things such as on endurance, strength, resistance to infection, etc, that are less important today. I wouldn't be surprised if selection on brains is actually stronger today than it used to be.
