Cheeky new details concerning the interbreeding between Neanderthals and our own species.
They took care of their community members without expecting anything in return.
The findings partially explain why humans were more successful than Neanderthals.
Yet another sign that the two species from the same Homo genus were very similar to one another.
Neanderthals were far more complex than meets the eye.
New insight into the evolution of Neanderthals but also into a common ancestral lineage.
We’re still finding the fruits of this interspecies love affair.
So remember, don’t smoke kids.
The study might help answer whether neanderthals were capable of the same communication abilities as humans.
Deep inside the Bruniquel Cave in France, a set of man-made structures 336 meters from the entrance lie as evidence to the former populations which inhabited the cave. These are among the oldest structures created by humans, and they have quite a story to tell about some of our ancestors. Until now, the earliest dated structures go back to only 38,000 years — found
There has been a long standing debate regarding the Neanderthal people, and what kind of legacy we carry from them. Recently, a study conducted by an international team of researchers led by Damian Labuda of the Department of Pediatrics at the University of Montreal and the CHU Sainte-Justine Research Center showed that a part of the human X chromosome originating
Usually, we tend to think of Neanderthals as being our bigger and stronger but not-so-intelligent cousins, but that may very well not be true; it has been shown on several occasions that Neanderthals were quite smart, and they could figure out a whole lot of things by their own, without immitating humans. In recent years, it is believed that the
