The human brain, old and new

Some dude says that the KNM-ER 1470 skull should be adjusted and that the brain therefore weren’t as big as originally hypothesized: http://news.nationalgeographic.com/news/2007/04/070405-human-skull.html
Rafe’s hero, John Hawks, and others had a great response (summation: No, you idiot!): http://johnhawks.net/weblog/fossils/habilis/er/bromage_1470_2007.html

New research shows that art classes make you a better doctor: http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/17707457/
So, now that they’ve cut all the art programs from schools, does that mean we’ll have stupider doctors? :/

One thought on “The human brain, old and new

  1. Rafe said: KNM ER 1470 is actually usually considered Homo Rudolphensis or homo Habilis or some even thing Homo ergaster which is way to many names of course for a period of 500,000 years if the new CC estimate was correct that would put it in the Austrolipithicine range but the new estimate is stupid, Personally I see it as transitional Homo erectus.
