Abstract

It is argued that rapid evolution of the hominid brain was accomplished by the molecular mechanisms of "regulatory evolution" and "gene duplication". These genomic processes may have made newly elaborated brain regions--including the association neocortices and parts of the hippocampal formation, nucleus basalis of Meynert and amygdaloid body--vulnerable to… (More)
