  • The Human Brain Is Decreasing Over Time! Evolution in humans is commonly thought to have essentially stopped in recent times. But there are plenty of examples that the human race is still evolving, including our brains, and there are even signs that our evolution may be accelerating. Shrinking brains Comprehensive scans of the human genome reveal that hundreds of our genes show evidence of changes during the past 10000 years of human evolution. "We know the brain has been evolving in human populations quite recently," said a paleoanthropologist. Surprisingly, based on skull measurements, the human brain appears to have been shrinking over the last 5000 or so years. "When it comes to recent evolutionary changes, we currently maybe have the least specific details with regard the brain, but we do know from archaeological data that pretty much everywhere we can measure — Europe, China, South Africa, Australia — that brains have shrunk about 150 cubic centimeters, off a mean of about 1350. That's roughly 10 percent," the paleoanthropologist said. "As to why is it shrinking, perhaps in big societies, as opposed to hunter-gatherer lifestyles, we can rely on other people for more things, can specialize our behavior to a greater extent, and maybe not need our brains as much," he added. Later in the video and shown from different perspectives is an 8 centimeter high carving of a human face on mammoth ivory that has been dated to 26000 years ago.

  • Scientists unearth tiny 'one-fingered' dinosaur in China January 2011: An International team of scientists have discovered the preserved skeletal remains of a previously unidentified theropod dinosaur in a rock formation on the border between Mongolia and China which dates back between 84 and 75 million years ago. Listen here to Dr David Hone from the UCD School of Biology and Environmental Science, one of the international scientific team led by Professor Xing Xu from the Institute of Vertebrate Paleontology & Paleoanthropology, Chinese Academy of Sciences, Beijing. The partial dinosaur skeleton includes bones of the vertebral column, the forelimb, a partial pelvis, and almost complete hind limbs. According to the international scientific team, this is the only known dinosaur specimen with one finger and claw at the end of each forelimb (or arm). The discovery published in the scientific journal PNAS (24 Jan 2011) highlights the complex pattern of evolution in the hand of the theropod dinosaur group. This dinosaur group ultimately gave rise to modern birds. Read the full story: www.ucd.ie

  • Thesis 47 Thesis 47 This novel agricultural lifestyle initially depressed adaptation and health, leading to intense natural selection for adaptations to the digestion of foods derived from grasses and milk, which has since produced adaptation to agricultural conditions at early ages. There are a variety of ways to understand what has happened to agricultural populations over the last tens of thousands of years. I will focus on two. Paleoanthropology supplies us with a long historical sequence of human skeletons to study. Before the advent of agriculture, our preserved skeletons show that we grew to a fair height, men averaging about 5 feet 5 inches to 5 feet 10 inches, women perhaps four or five inches shorter than this, on average. Close inspection of such skeletons indicates fair nutrition, although orthopedic injury was common. With the advent of agriculture, the skeletons suggest an abrupt reduction in average height. This is also sometimes associated with evidence of chronic disease and poor nutrition. In Egyptian mummies, for example, there is evidence of chronic cardiovascular disease. But all that evidence is indirect, and at least somewhat arguable. Fortunately, we have still better evidence of the kind assembled by Lindeberg in his "Food and Western Disease," already mentioned. For we have clinical medical data on the effects of adopting Western foods and lifestyles on twentieth century relics of hunter-gatherer populations. And those clinical data are damning: switching ...

Prof Roksandic (paleonathropologist at the Department of Anthropology, University of Winnipeg) joined Dusan Mihailovic's (University of Belgrade) team in 2006 to study early human occupation in the Balkan peninsula. Balkans represents the most convenient corridor for human and animal populations to penetrate Europe. At the gates of Europe in Dmanisi Georgia, we have earliest evidence of human populations outside of Africa at 1.7 million years ago. We also know that hominins reached western Europe by 1.2 mya. We also know that anatomically modern humans (an older version of all of us) spread into Europe through Balkan peninsula, but we do not have solid evidence of any Pleistocene developments in this part of the world.

  • Neanderthal Genes Found in Modern Humans Complete video at: fora.tv Dr. Jean-Jacques Hublin of the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology details a recent and curious discovery of a possible genetic integration between Neanderthals and modern humans around 60000 years ago. ----- Neandertals were the first fossil hominins discovered and, since then, have been the most studied. However, it is only in the last two decades that entirely new techniques have made new and fascinating insights into their biology and behavior possible. Beyond their odd anatomy, we are now able to explore the mechanisms of their birth and growth, the way their brains developed, and the chemical signals left in their bones from their diet. The decoding of their genome has opened a new era in paleoanthropology. Ultimately, understanding the rise and the fall of the Neandertals will help us to elucidate the unrivaled evolutionary success of our own species. - California Academy of Sciences Jean-Jacques Hublin, Ph.D., is currently a Professor at the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology in Leipzig (Germany), where he serves as the Director of the Department of Human Evolution. He has also been an honorary Professor at the University of Leipzig since 2004. Initially his research focused on the origin and evolution of Neanderthals and he has proposed an accretion model for the emergence of the Neandertal lineage that roots it in time in the middle of the middle Pleistocene. He also worked on the processes associated ...

  • Neanderthal Man 4 of 5 The Neanderthal is an extinct member of the Homo genus that is known from Pleistocene specimens found in Europe and parts of western and central Asia. Neanderthals are either classified as a subspecies of humans (Homo sapiens neanderthalensis) or as a separate species (Homo neanderthalensis). The first proto-Neanderthal traits appeared in Europe as early as 600000 - 350000 years ago. Neanderthal Man Playlist: 1 of 5: 2 of 5: 3 of 5: 4 of 5: 5 of 5: Proto-Neanderthal traits are occasionally grouped to another phenetic 'species', Homo heidelbergensis, or a migrant form, Homo rhodesiensis. By 130000 years ago, complete Neanderthal characteristics had appeared. These characteristics then disappeared in Asia by 50000 years ago and in Europe by 30000 years ago. The youngest Neanderthal finds include Hyaena Den (UK), considered older than 30000 years ago, while the Vindija (Croatia) Neanderthals have been re-dated to between 32000 and 33000 years ago. No definite specimens younger than 30000 years ago have been found; however, evidence of fire by Neanderthals at Gibraltar indicate that they may have survived there until 24000 years ago. Cro-Magnon or early modern human skeletal remains with 'Neanderthal traits' were found in Lagar Velho (Portugal), dated to 24500 years ago and controversially interpreted as indications of extensively admixed populations.

  • Liaoningornis longidigitris Liaoningornis (meaning "bird of Liaoning" in Greek) is a genus of bird from Lower Cretaceous China. It was collected from the dinosaur-bearing beds of the Sihetun locality, of the Yixian Formation, Shangyuan, near the city of Beipiao in Liaoning province. The only known species is Liaoningornis longidigitris. It was described by Linhai Hou in 1996 and 1997. The single fossil is an incomplete semi-articulated skeleton the size of a sparrow. It includes both feet, the right leg, the sternum, part of the right arm, and fragmentary coracoids and pubes. Its accession number is IVPP11303. It is in the collection of the Institute of Vertebrate Paleontology and Paleoanthropology in Beijing. Liaoningornis is a surprisingly advanced bird for the Early Cretaceous. Zhou and Hou in 2002 considered it the oldest known member of the Ornithurae. It has advanced flight, perching, and respiratory adaptations like a long, deeply keeled sternum, a pair of anterolateral processes on the sternum near the articulations with the coracoids, fused, short, metatarsals, and highly curved pedal claws indicating good perching ability. Hou et al. (1996) described the metatarsals as fused only distally, but Zhou and Hou (2002) revised this ***ysis, finding that the metatarsus was fused distally and proximally, but not along most of the length.
  • Could a Neanderthal Woman Beat a Champion Arm Wrestler? Complete video at: fora.tv Peter McAllister, author of Manthropology, compares the muscular size and strength of modern-day humans with that of Neanderthals. By examining fossil records, he has determined that a Neanderthal woman could exert more force than champion arm wrestler Alexey Voevoda. ----- Could your husband, brother or father be the worst man in history?

  • Newly Discovered Relics Show Ancient Chinese Knew How to Use Fire For more news visit ☛ Follow us on Twitter ☛ http ☛ Add us on Facebook ☛me.lt There is new evidence to show that ancient Chinese ape-men knew how to use fire. Newly discovered relics at the Peking Man cave site were found in the ruins there site where a Chinese ape-man was first discovered. Chinese archaeologists have found new evidence to show that ancient Chinese people knew how to use fire. The relics were discovered at the Peking Man cave site in the village of Zhoukoudian near Beijing. Peking Man is an ancient Chinese ape-man that lived as much as 750000 years ago. According to archaeologists, there are about ten cultural layers in the cave of the Chinese ape-men. The fourth layer or ash layer is the top cultural layer indicating a period of human activities. Ancient Chinese probably lived from the third to the tenth level. Archeologists have been digging the ruins since mid-May. In August they uncovered numerous relics, giving evidence that ancient Chinese knew how to use fire. There are nearly 400 relics, including scrapers, choppers and hammers made of stone. More than 700 samples of medium and large animal bones, and fossils of rodents and birds have been uncovered. The fire pits and ashes could be the relics showing the use of fire and the cave-life of ancient Chinese people. [Gao Xing, Inst. of Vertebrate Paleontology & Paleoanthropology]: "We can make an initial conclusion that ancient people have used fire [and] could keep the flame here ...
