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.
