On October 18th-19th we celebrate at the CENIEH a symposium on Human Paleoneurology. The meeting will include talks on neuroscience and brain evolution (Chet Sherwood, Washington University), computed tools for paleoneurology (Philipp Gunz, Max Planck Institute), functional craniology and brain morphological integration (Emiliano Bruner, CENIEH), ontogeny and phylogeny (Simon Neubauer, Max Planck Institute), endocranial thermoregulation (José Manuel de la Cuétara, CENIEH), archaeology and behaviour (Natalie Uomini, University of Liverpool), working memory and human evolution (Fred Coolidge, University of Colorado). Participation is free, you just have to send a registration form to comunicacion@cenieh.es, before October 10th.

  • NEANDERTAL COGNITION OFFERED ONLINE NOW AT THE CENTER FOR COGNITIVE ARCHAEOLOGY @ UCCS
    How did Neandertals experience their world? How did their cognition and culture differ from ours? Were they pragmatic? Callous or cold-hearted? Did they love, were they charitable? Were they tough? Dogmatic? Xenophobic? Join Professors Thomas Wynn and James Hicks for our online course in the Neandertal Cognition. Together, we will explore the mind of some … […]

  • Cercopithecid parietal lobes
    The parietal cortical association areas have increased in size and complexity in primates, and their evolution is thought to be influenced by exploratory and feeding behavior. Nonetheless, studies considering parietal lobe morphology and macroscopic anatomy among primate taxa are scarce. Cercopithecidae represent an interesting group for evolutionary studies […]

  • Researchers develop non-invasive deep brain stimulation method
    Researchers at MIT have developed a new method of electrically stimulating deep brain tissues without opening the skullSince 1997, more than 100,000 Parkinson’s Disease patients have been treated with deep brain stimulation (DBS), a surgical technique that involves the implantation of ultra-thin wire electrodes. The implanted device, sometimes referred to as […]
