Skull Bones Restricted the Evolution of Earth’s Earliest Land Animals

According to new research, the skulls of tetrapods had fewer bones than extinct and living fish, restricting their evolution for millions of years. By analyzing fossil skulls of animals across the transition from an aquatic to terrestrial environment, scientists discovered that tetrapods had more

What Makes Your Brain Different From a Neanderthal’s? | Portside

Scientists have discovered a glitch in our DNA that may have helped set the minds of our ancestors apart from those of Neanderthals and other extinct relatives. The mutation, which arose in the past few hundred thousand years, spurs the development of more neurons in the part of the brain that we use for our most complex forms of thought, according to a new study published in Science on Thursday.

‘Phenomenal’ Ancient DNA Data Set Provides Clues to Origin of Farming and Early Languages | Portside

Few places have shaped Eurasian history as much as the ancient Near East. Agriculture and some of the world’s first civilizations were born there, and the region was home to ancient Greeks, Troy, and large swaths of the Roman Empire. “It’s absolutely central, and a lot of us work on it for precisely that reason,” says German Archaeological Institute archaeologist Svend Hansen. “It’s always been a bridge of cultures and a key driver of innovation and change.”

Dragons and Brain Evolution – Neuroscience News

Researchers created a molecular atlas of the bearded dragon’s brain and compared it to the mouse brain. Findings reveal, contrary to popular belief, mammalian brains consist of an ancient reptilian brain supplemented with new mammalian features. Both reptilian and mammalian brains evolved their own clade-specific neuron types and circuits from a common ancestral set.

Darwin was too stupid to come up with a theory of evolution but saw the item needed in the famous rip off of Wallace. This site here (EVO NEWWS) is critical of Darwinism, but can’t seem to look at …
