    I Like this quote I dislike this quote“Our studies indicate that the trend that is the defining characteristic of human evolution--the growth of brain size and complexity--is likely still going on. Meanwhile, our environment and the skills we need to survive in it are changing faster then we ever imagined. I would expect the human brain, which has done well by us so far, will continue to adapt to those changes.”

    I Like this quote I dislike this quote“Our studies indicate that the trend that is the defining characteristic of human evolution -- the growth of brain size and complexity -- is likely still going on. If our species survives for another million years or so, I would imagine that the brain by then would show significant structural differences from the human brain of today.”

    I Like this quote I dislike this quote“The next step is to find out what biological difference imparted by this genetic difference causes selection to favor that variation over the others.”

    I Like this quote I dislike this quote“In a very short period of time, this class of variants arose from a single copy to many copies. That implies that this must have happened because of positive selection.”

    I Like this quote I dislike this quote“If we look at multiple genes, the ethnic variations such as the ones we found are likely to be counterbalanced by other differences. Just because these genes are still evolving, doesn't necessarily mean they make you any smarter. We've evolved genes for selfishness, violence, cruelty รป- all of which are in place because they may make survival easier.”
