The evolution of language: Present behavioral evidence for past genetic reprogramming in the human lineage
Graduate studies at Western
Behavioral and Brain Sciences 29 (3):284-285 (2006)
|Abstract||Language and life history can be related functionally through the study of human ontogeny, thus usefully informing our understanding of several unique aspects of the evolution of species. The operational principles outlined by Locke & Bogin (L&B) demonstrate that the present can provide a useful framework for understanding the past.|
