It will interest a wide range of readers in cognitive, neuro-, and evolutionary science, as well as all those seeking to understand the nature and evolution of speech and human Reviews: 1.

    This article is from Frontiers in Human Neuroscience, volume ctWhere hemispheric lateralization was once considered an exclusively human trait, it is. Anthropoid Evolution by Keenan Taylor. While we have no primate fossil material prior to the Eocene Epoch, the first primates are thought to have evolved prior to the Paleocene Epoch (66–56 mya), possibly as far back as 90 mya, during the Late Cretaceous the extinction of the dinosaurs at the end of the Cretaceous, many terrestrial niches became available and predation pressures.

      When tickled, the higher primates (humans, chimpanzees, gorillas and orangutans) all display a laughter-like behaviour (Caron, ; Fry, ). Fry dates the “rudimentary elements of contemporary humor” to million years ago — a figure representing the last common ancestor of Homo sapiens and chimpanzees. The first fifty million years of primate evolution was a series of adaptive radiations leading to the diversification of the earliest lemurs, monkeys, and apes. The primate story begins in the canopy and understory of conifer-dominated forests, with our small, furtive ancestors subsisting at night, beneath the notice of day-active dinosaurs.

How great is the evolutionary distance between humans and apes, and what is it that creates that gulf. Philosophers and scientists have debated the question for centuries, but Michael Corballis finds the mystery revealed in our right hands. For humans are the only primates who are predominantly right handed, a sign of the specialization of the left hemisphere of the brain for language.

In: Evolution and lateralization of the brain. Annals of the New York Academy of Sciences, ed. Dimond, S. & Blizard, D. New York Academy of Sciences. [aPFM]. This book demonstrates how the primate hand combines both primitive and novel morphology, both general function with specialization, and both a remarkable degree of diversity within some clades and yet general similarity across many others.

Across the chapters, different authors have addressed. Phan Luu, Don M. Tucker, in Handbook of Neurolinguistics, ASYMMETRIES IN CORTICOLIMBIC EVOLUTION. That hemispheric specialization involves an asymmetry in corticolimbic networks was first proposed by Bear ().He recognized that the right hemisphere’s spatial skills must draw on the spatial processing abilities of the dorsal cortical pathway.

In addition, F/C modes of hand-mouth interaction made a contribution to the evolution of both systems. They may have in common a postural origin for their shared left hemisphere specialization, in the form of an adaptation to demands of a (mostly) asymmetrical arboreal environment in early primates.

Lack of dietary specialization. This is typical of most primates, who tend to eat a wide assortment of food items. In general, primates are omnivorous. A generalized dentition. The teeth aren’t specialized for processing only one type of food, a pattern related to the lack of dietary specialization.

The two hemispheres of the human brain are not equivalent. Relative functional differences between the left and the right side of the brain, so-called functional hemispheric asymmetries, have been observed for several cognitive functions (Corballis, ).For example, most individuals show a right-hemispheric dominance for visuo-spatial processing (e.g., Vogel et al., ).

Abstract. This book is a milestone in human attempts to understand ourselves and our world. It is the first book entirely devoted to the question of behavioral asymmetries in all primates. The existence of the book (for which the editors deserve our gratitude) is an indirect result of the accumulation of enough instances of lateralized behavior in nonhuman primates at the population level to.

Asymmetries of emotional facial expressions in humans offer reliable indexes to infer brain lateralization and mostly revealed right hemisphere dominance. Studies concerned with oro-facial asymmetries in nonhuman primates largely showed a left-sided asymmetry in chimpanzees, marmosets and macaques.

they appear to be an ideal model to investigate the precursors of brain hemispheric specialization in humans. Studies on great apes (Hopkins, ; see also Pika.Indirect observations of hemispheric specialization for monkey communication signals include preferential head turning to the right when species-specific monkey vocalizations were presented from behind the monkey indicating a left hemisphere processing preference (Ghazanfar & Hauser, ).
