Dynamics of learning

Dynamics of Learning 2014The talks from the Tokyo meeting on learning processes in Neanderthals and modern humans are now published in two books by Springer. The first volume is on cultural perspectives, the second volume is on cognitive and physical perspectives. Cultural anthropologists, paleontologists, archaeologists, sociologists, medical doctors, and psychologists collaborate in a joint project coordinated by several Japanese universities and research institutions (like the Kochi University of Technology and the Keio University) to evaluate whether differences in learning abilities may have influenced the competition between modern humans and Neanderthals. In volume two there is a review of mine on Neanderthals’ paleoneurology, presenting the current information we have on the anatomical and morphological endocranial changes associated with the Neanderthal lineage. The paper evidences structural constraints and functional limits which may have characterized the spatial organization of the Neanderthal braincase.
