Human brain development (evolutionary view)   posted by Razib @ 10/23/2005 01:26:00 PM

I often get asked about questions regarding the size and development of the human brain in the evolutionary context, and I have a hard time remembering the material on allometry and what not that I've read here and there.1 But The Journal of Human Evolution has a nice paper up, Human encephalization and developmental timing, which I've put up as a PDF in the GNXP forum files as "encephalization."

1 - My primary source in The Symbolic Species, though I've read other stuff in the literature....
