Proofs of parallel evolution between cognition, tool development, and social complexity: A study analyses the selective attention processes that determine how we explore and interact with our environment — ScienceDaily

A study has used eye-tracking techniques to analyze the processes of selective attention that determine the way in which we explore and interact with our environment. Researchers studied the movements of the eyes when observing different decorative patterns represented in prehistoric ceramic objects. The results indicate that there is a parallel evolution between the cognitive processes, the development of material culture, and social complexity.
