Robert Sapolsky: Are Humans Just Another Primate? Bio Dr.
Robert Sapolsky Robert Sapolsky is one of the world's leading neuroscientists, and has been called "one of the finest natural history writers around" by The New York Times. In studying wild baboon populations, Sapolsky examined how prolonged stress can cause physical and mental afflictions. His lab was among the first to document that stress can damage the neurons of the hippocampus.

"Sharing is Caring" by Nathaniel Gold Charles Darwin had more in common with chimpanzees than even he realized. Before he was universally known for his theory of natural selection, the young naturalist was faced with one of the great moral choices in the history of science. The decision he made has long been hailed as the type of behavior that fundamentally separates humans from other apes. But a new study reveals for the first time that thinking of others unites humans and chimpanzees in a cooperative bond that reaches across two epochs to the very evolutionary ancestor Darwin predicted.
On the morning of June 18, 1858, a parcel arrived that threatened to undo the originality of Darwin’s masterwork. Chimps vs. Humans: How Are We Different? "Give orange me give eat orange me eat orange give me eat orange give me you.
" That's the longest string of words that Nim Chimpsky, a chimpanzee who scientists raised as a human and taught sign language in the 1970s, ever signed. He was the subject of Project Nim, an experiment conducted by cognitive scientists at Columbia University to investigate whether chimps can learn language. After years of exposing Nim to all things human, the researchers concluded that although he did learn to express demands — the desire for an orange, for instance — and knew 125 words, he couldn't fully grasp language, at least as they defined it.
Language requires not just vocabulary but also syntax, they argued. Osher UCSD: Redrawing Lines Between Chimps and Humans - UCSD-TV - University of California Television.

Hominidés - Préhistoire - Homme en évolution de Toumai à Homo Sapiens. The Neandertal Genome - Background. Neandertals (Homo neanderthalensis) are currently believed to be our closest evolutionary relatives.
Although some researchers once thought they were our immediate ancestors in Europe, most now agree that Neandertals and modern humans most likely shared a common ancestor within the last 500,000 years, possibly in Africa. The morphological features typical of Neandertals first appear in the European fossil record about 400,000 years ago, with bones of full-fledged Neandertals showing up at least 130,000 years ago. They lived in Europe and western Asia, as far east as southern Siberia and as far south as the Middle East (see map), before disappearing from the fossil record about 30,000 years ago.
