Lecture "Evolution of brain size and intelligence"

by Carel van Schaik, Universitz of Zürich, Switzerland

18.11.2016 at 12:00 

Location: large lecture hall in Biocentre (B00.019)

All students and faculty members are hereby cordially invited to attend.

Carel is a primatologist from the University of Zurich who has contributed seminal studies to our understanding of how life history traits co-evolve with brain size and hence which ecological factors might drive brain size changes including the three-fold increase during human brain evolution (see e.g. his recent book: The Primate Origins of Human Nature).

You can find more information about Professor Carel van Schaik and his research on this website.
