Neanderthal 'mini brains' created from ancient DNA could illuminate human brain biology - Genetic Literacy Project


Genetic Literacy Project
They could demonstrate for the first time if there were meaningful differences between human and Neanderthal brain biology. “Neanderthals are the closest relatives to everyday humans, so if we should define ourselves as a group or a species it is ...
