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.

  • Age related changes of adult cranial morphology
    Age-related cranial morphological changes in adult humans are generally considered as minor or negligible. However, with age the adult human cranium undergoes non-pathological processes of thickening. In the case of hyperostosis frontalis interna, for example, thickening preferentially involves the inner part of frontal bones, influencing the cranial morphol […]
