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.

    “Replacement of Neanderthals by Modern Humans” (RNMH) is a project aimed at investigating possible cognitive and behavioural  differences between these two human groups. I belong to the team coordinated by Naomichi Ogihara at the Keio University, and we have now published a review article  about digital reconstruction of fossil crania and analysis of their b […]
