Human Brain Evolution: The Oldest Sources of Our Behavior

Standard

It is worthwhile to know a bit about anthropology of human ancestors because their ecosystems determined much of our modern behavior.  For example:

“…early hominid took its first steps on two legs in the forest long before it ventured very far into the open grassland.  “Multiple lines of evidence now suggest that they were beginning to leave the trees before they left the forest.”

Piecing together relationships between the diets of hominids several million years ago to that of early and modern humans is allowing scientists to see how diet relates to the evolution of cognitive abilities, social structures, locomotion and even disease
