Neandertal learning

An international conference will be held in Tokyo (18-24 November, 2012) entitled “Replacement of Neanderthals by Modern Humans: Testing Evolutionary Models of Learning”. The meeting is associated with a very large multidisciplinary project aimed at considering Neandertal cognition, evolution, and extinction, in terms of learning capabilities. Anatomists, archaeologists, paleontologists, psychologists, and many specialists from other fields will meet to discuss cognitive differences between modern humans and Neandertals, most of all those possibly involved in the transmission of culture.

  • Mapping the cranial vault
    More on vault thickness. As we commented in the previous post, the cranial vault can be divided in three layers: external table, diploe and internal table. Many previously studies provided information about skull thickness and density, but generally were based on a scarce number of measurements and with limited small sample size. Digital anatomy allows […]
