Couverture de l’ouvrage Evolution of the Human Brain: from Matter to Mind

This volume of Progress in Brain Research documents the latest developments and insights about the origin and evolution of the human brain and mind. Specific areas include developmental neurobiology, evolutionary genetics, comparative and functional neuroanatomy, neural information processing, human brain evolution, as well as comparative psychology, cognitive neuroscience and the evolution of human language and emotion.



  • Presents insights on molecular and cellular mechanisms of human brain evolution
  • Provides a better understanding of the origin and evolution of the human mind
  • Includes information of the neural organization and functional connectivityof the cerebral cortex
