A new PhD student in the team working on craniovascular anatomy! Stanislava Eisová was in our laboratory few years ago, publishing a paper on parietal bone and vessels in which she investigated correlations between craniovascular morphology, skull size, and bone thickness. She got a Master Degree in Anthropology of Past Populations at the University of West Bohemia, Czech Republic. Now she begins a PhD program on Anthropology and Human Genetics at the Faculty of Science of the Charles University, Prague. Her project will be on craniovascular traits, anthropology, paleoanthropology, and paleopathology. She will investigate craniovascular characters in normal samples, pathological conditions, and fossil specimens. The project is co-directed by Petr Velemínský.

- Australopithecus africanusAmélie Beaudet and coauthors have published a shape analysis of the endocranial surface of two specimens included in the hypodigm of Australopithecus africanus, namely Sts 5 and Sts 60. They used a deformation-based approach, as to quantify the global endocranial surface variations. They compared the endocasts of the two specimens with modern humans (Homo sa […]

- Who needs an osteologist? (Installment 45)Cecilia, my 8-year-old, came home this week with a packet of work she completed in 3rd grade. One worksheet attempted to teach them about the bones in the human body through math, which is pretty cool. But I noticed an error.

- Researchers develop non-invasive deep brain stimulation methodResearchers at MIT have developed a new method of electrically stimulating deep brain tissues without opening the skullSince 1997, more than 100,000 Parkinson’s Disease patients have been treated with deep brain stimulation (DBS), a surgical technique that involves the implantation of ultra-thin wire electrodes. The implanted device, sometimes referred to as […]
