Studies of brain evolution have moved rapidly in recent years, building on the pioneering research of Harry J. Jerison. This book provides state-of-the-art reviews of primate (including human) brain evolution. The volume is divided into two sections, the first offers new perspectives on the developmental, physiological, dietary, and behavioral correlates of brain enlargement. However, it has long been recognized that brains do not merely enlarge globally as they evolve, but that their cortical and internal organization also changes in a process known as reorganization. Species-specific adaptations therefore have neurological substrates that depend on more than just overall brain size. The second section explores these neurological underpinnings for the senses, adaptations, and cognitive abilities that are important for primates. With a prologue by Stephen J. Gould and an epilogue by Harry J. Jerison, this is an important new reference work for all those working on primate brain evolution.

Book Description:

Much has been learnt in the past 20 years about brain evolution in primates including humans. This state-of-the-art review of primate brain evolution covers not only brain enlargement, but also internal brain organisation, allowing questions about the evolution of intelligence and cognition to be answered. In addition, the book looks to the future regarding both research technology and predictions for ongoing brain evolution in humans, providing its readers with a well-rounded picture of the current state of research on primate brain evolution.

Dean Falk is a Senior Scholar at the School for Advanced Research in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Her previous books include "Finding Our Tongues: Mothers, Infants, and the Origin of Language" and "Braindance, Revised and Expanded Edition: New Discoveries about Human Origins and Brain Evolution".
