Throughout history, humans have been fascinated by their origins. The evolutionary development of the human brain has been of particular interest since our intellectual, emotional, and cultural capacities are considered to be unique among animals. This book brings together a group of eminent scientists from the fields of evolutionary biology, anthropology, neuroscience, and psychology. Their views provide a starting point for a debate based on the most recent scientific data relating to the evolutionary origins of the human brain, drawing together knowledge from sciences of the past (paleontology, archaeology) and those of the present and future (molecular neurobiology, population genetics). The result is a lively, informative, and valuable synthesis that will interest a wide range of students and researchers in these fields.

Review:


"This intriguing collection is useful in stretching the thoughts of a reader by challenging him or her to consider how the different perspectives of other fields can affect his or her own thinking about the brain. --Stephen Kelso, Ph.D., University of Illinois at Chicago


"...[this book] is a relatively rich source of information about the influence of social and cultural processes on human brain function and on human intellectual processes."--American Anthropologist
