    Present-day hunter-gatherers (HGs) live in multilevel social groups essential to sustain a population structure characterized by limited levels of within-band relatedness and inbreeding. When these wider social networks ...
  • The coevolution of play and the cortico-cerebellar system in primates. 

    Kerney, Max; Smaers, Jeroen B; Schoenemann, P Thomas; Dunn, Jacob C (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2017-10)
    Primates are some of the most playful animals in the natural world, yet the reason for this remains unclear. One hypothesis posits that primates are so playful because playful activity functions to help develop the ...
  • Migrating microbes: what pathogens can tell us about population movements and human evolution 

    Houldcroft, CJ; Ramond, J-B; Rifkin, RF; Underdown, SJ (Taylor & Francis, 2017-08)
    Background: The biology of human migration can be observed from the co-evolutionary relationship with infectious diseases. While many pathogens are brief, unpleasant visitors to human bodies, others have the ability to ...
  • The study of human Y chromosome variation through ancient DNA 

    Kivisild, T (Springer, 2017-03-04)
    High throughput sequencing methods have completely transformed the study of human Y chromosome variation by offering a genome-scale view on genetic variation retrieved from ancient human remains in context of a growing ...
