Re:A question?

In attempting to understand this...Yes there is 4x the amount of light falling on the sensor of a full frame, and more on a medium format. Are the advantages of larger formats related to the fact that each area of the sensor would process a smaller area of the light? And if pixel size were decreased over that same area, say 4X the amount of pixels, that each pixel would have less work to do to describe the image?
