On April 20, Professor Chet Sherwood (Center for the Advanced Study of Human Paleobiology George Washington Mind-Brain Institute) will give a formal online MPI Colloquium. After the talk, there will be a Q&A session using the webinar chat function.
Great Apes as Models for Understanding Human Brain Evolution
Great apes are the closest living relatives of humans. Therefore, studies of great ape brain variation provide an essential context for interpreting human brain evolution. In addition, great apes represent a diverse neuroethological system in terms of socioecological adaptations. This talk will explore how studies of great ape brains help us to better understand humans’ place in nature.
