Primates show distinctions in hearing sensitivity and auditory morphology that generally follow phylogenetic patterns. However, few previous studies have attempted to investigate how differences in… Continue Reading
The auditory region contains numerous structures that have proven useful for phylogenetic classification at various taxonomic levels. However, little work has been done in primates relating… Continue Reading
Mammals are unique in being the only group of amniotes that can hear sounds in the upper frequency range (>12 kHz), yet details about the evolutionary development of hearing patterns remain poorly… Continue Reading
Computed tomography (CT) is a powerful analytical tool that is becoming increasingly popular for investigating small and difficult to visualize (internal) structures. However, along with this… Continue Reading
Research on the hearing abilities of nonhuman primates dates back >70 yr and there are audiograms —graphs showing hearing sensitivity over a range of frequencies— for 29 different species including… Continue Reading
In recent years it has become possible to investigate the hearing capabilities in fossils by analogy with studies in living taxa that correlate the bony morphology of the auditory system with hearing… Continue Reading
The auditory ossicles in primates have proven to be a reliable source of phylogenetic information. Nevertheless, to date, very little data have been published on the metric dimensions of the ear… Continue Reading
Abstract We provide the first detailed endocranial description of the petrosal bone of the ear region of the anthracotheriid artiodactyl Bothriogenys, based on two new specimens from the early… Continue Reading
Cranial arterial patterns are commonly used for determining phylogenetic patterns in extant taxa and have often been used in studies investigating the relationships among fossil taxa. In primitive… Continue Reading
Neurogenic thoracic outlet syndrome (TOS), compression of proximal portions of the brachial plexus as they course through the superior thoracic outlet, is the most common type of TOS, and often res...
