Researchers report that brain size influences the development of individual cranial bones.
Researchers find differential control of an animal's musculature is already in place in the spinal networks of simple fish.
A new study reports the oxytocin receptor plays a special role in the ability to remember faces.
Researchers discover some crocodiles use lures to hunt their pray, suggesting they are cleverer than previously believed.
Researchers discover specific neurons in the brains of rhesus macaque monkeys respond to images of snakes.
Researchers find the differences in primate brains can be explained as a consequence of the same genetic program.
A new study indicates early hominids developed dexterity and the ability to use tools before the development of bipedal locomotion.
Comparing fMRI scans of human brains and those of rhesus monkeys, researchers believe they have new evidence which proves humans have unique cortical brain networks.
Linguistics and biology researchers propose a new theory on the deep roots of human speech. A new study suggests human language is a grafting of two communication forms found elsewhere in the animal kingdom: first, the elaborate songs of birds, and second, the more utilitarian, information-bearing types of expression seen in a diversity of other animals.
New research has shed light on the evolutionary origin of the head.Researchers showed that in a simple, brainless sea anemone, the same genes that control head development in higher animals regulate the development of the front end of the swimming larvae.
