The Culinary Origins of Human Occupation: Part 1 (Motor and Process Skills)

This paper proposes that human occupation cannot be understood in a biologically valid evolutionary sense without an appreciation of energy metabolism as the primary cause of human occupational evolution; that the authors' hominid ancestors evolved into occupational human beings in response to clearly identifiable climatological events that threatened their food supply.

New evidence of human-like specialization in crows' manufacture of hook tools from pandanus leaves is found: functional lateralization or ‘handedness’ and the shaping of these tools to a rule system, the first demonstration that a population bias for handedness in tool-making and the shape of tools to rule systems are not concomitant with symbolic thought and language.

The Representation of Tool Use in Humans and Monkeys: Common and Uniquely Human Features

While the observation of a grasping hand activated similar regions in humans and monkeys, an additional specific sector of IPL devoted to tool use has evolved in Homo sapiens, although tool-specific neurons might reside in the monkey grasping regions.

Identification of functional features through observations and interactions

A formalism based on Discrete Event System Theory and on the paradigm of Active Perception is developed that expresses an investigating task in the form of a nite automaton for controlling and observing interactions.

To haft and to hold: Evidence for the hafting of Clovis fluted points

Clovis fluted points vary considerably in technology and morphology, but also share a set of attributes, the most diagnostic of which are the flute scars, the remnants of the flake removals from the
