Evolution of the human brain: when bigger is better

From an external perspective it could appear that way, depends on how big the overhead is. Seems more likely that it wouldn't have to throttle down that much to ensure synchronicity so more like a lethargic state where movements and responses are slow for a time. It's basically a dynamic merging of the various modules into synchronicity. Going too long without this sort of slow-sync could lead to reduced cognitive faculties as separate modules become increasingly reliant on localised "knowledge", erratic thoughts and at the extreme end multiple personality disorder (the "disorder" part being literal that the various alternate personalities are antagonistic to one another).
