Recently, a convergence of views has led to the notion that the study of animal domestication may tell us something not only about our relationship with domesticated species since perhaps at least the Pleistocene, but also about our own evolution as a species in the more distant past. This symposium brings together scientists from a variety of research backgrounds to examine these views and to elucidate further the possible role of domestication in human evolution. Terrence Deacon (UC Berkeley) begins with a discussion about The Domesticated Brain, followed by Philipp Khaitovich (PICB, Shanghai) on Neotenous Gene Expression in the Developing Human Brain, and Tecumseh Fitch (Univ of Vienna) on The Domestication Syndrome and Neural Crest Cells: A Unifying Hypothesis. Recorded on 10/10/2014. (#28892)
