Slide16 l.jpg

Lateral view of the brain. The illustration shows the increase in the

cerebral cortex of the brain. The cerebral cortex integrates sensory

information and selects responses.

Understanding Physical Anthropology and Archaeology, 9th ed., p. 107


The brains17 l.jpg
The brains . . . increase in the

humans have highly developed frontal and occipital regions of the brain . . .


The brains18 l.jpg
The brains . . . increase in the

occipital region =

curved back and base

of the skull


Slide19 l.jpg

Gracile increase in the Australopithecus / Homo Lineage Brain

Humankind Emerging, 7th ed., p. 390


The brains20 l.jpg
The brains . . . increase in the

cerebrum =

  • large rounded structure of the brain

  • largest part of the brain

  • comprises ca. 85% of the brain’s total weight


Slide21 l.jpg

Lateral view of the brain. The illustration shows the increase in the

cerebral cortex of the brain. The cerebral cortex integrates sensory

information and selects responses.

Understanding Physical Anthropology and Archaeology, 9th ed., p. 107


The brains22 l.jpg
The brains . . . increase in the

The cerebral cortex

(neocortex)

increases in area


The brains23 l.jpg
The brains . . . increase in the

cerebral cortex =

neocortex =

thin layer of grey matter covering the cerebrum


The brains25 l.jpg
The brains . . . increase in the

in humans the cerebral cortex lies in folds or “convolutions” over the entire surface of the cerebral hemisphere


The brains27 l.jpg
The brains . . . increase in the

prehistorically the convoluted cerebral cortex can often be seen in “endocasts”


The brains28 l.jpg
The brains . . . increase in the

endocasts =

fossilized casts of the interior of a skull


The brains30 l.jpg
The brains . . . increase in the

humans also have

well-developed “association” areas . . .


The brains31 l.jpg
The brains . . . increase in the

association areas are thought to be involved in learning, memory, thinking, and bringing together information form the various senses


The brains32 l.jpg
The brains . . . increase in the

association areas =

regions of the cerebral hemispheres thought to serve some integrative function . . .
