Brain Size, Cranial Morphology, Climate, and Time Machines [and Comments and Reply]
Relations between body size and brain size indicate that human populations under severe cold stress obtain large volumes more from rounder cranial shape than from differentiation by total body size.
Object manipulation, tool use and sensorimotor intelligence as feeding adaptations in cebus monkeys and great apes
The Oxford Handbook of Language Evolution
This chapter discusses language change, creation, and transmission in the context of comparative animal behaviour and the history of language.
Expansion of the neocerebellum in Hominoidea.
A developmental model for the evolution of language and intelligence in early hominids
It is proposed that the common ancestor of the great apes and man displayed rudimentary forms of late sensorimotor and early preoperational intelligence similar to that of one- to four-year-old children, which arose as adaptations for extractive foraging with tools, which requires a long postweaning apprenticeship.
Myelination and behavioral development: A comparative perspective on questions of neoteny, altriciality and intelligence.

Variability in the attainment of functional milestones during the acute care admission after total joint replacement.
Examination of patients' progress in attaining specific functional milestones is a unique approach to outcome assessment that emphasizes the physical therapy aspect of postsurgical rehabilitation.

A continuity model is presented that suggests that expanded human mental capacities primarily reflect the increased information processing capacities of the enlarged human brain including the enlarged neocortex, cerebellum, and basal ganglia.
Mammalian social learning : comparative and ecological perspectives
This book discusses social learning in cetaceans: hunting, hearing and hierarchies, and the implications of vocal learning in bottlenose dolphins and Dolphins and Whales: Communication and Foraging in Aquatic Environments.
