An increase in blood supply appears to be linked closely to the evolution of human intelligence, a new study reports.
Researchers report the cranium of a 4 million year old hominin shows striking similarity to that of modern humans.
Researchers create the first endocast reconstruction of nearly the complete brain of the hominin Little Bigfoot. The brain, researchers report, is relatively small and combines both ape like and human like features.
Bipedalism dramatically reshaped the hominin pelvis into a real birth canal. Researchers report Australopithecus had complex birth patterns compared to Great Apes and were likely to have practiced co-operative breeding.
