New member of the lab! Annapaola Fedato did her master thesis on cognitive archaeology and visuospatial integration in our laboratory, as a student from the University of Padua (Italy). And now she will keep on working on the same issue with a PhD grant, dealing with experimental archaeology, affordance, and hand-tool relationships. About this topic, here a perspective paper on visuospatial integration and human evolution, and a review on visuospatial behaviours and fossil evidence. Because this blog deals mainly with brain and skull anatomy, she will be in charge of posting news and information on those brain areas involved in visuospatial functions. Welcome! [Affiliation Info]

- Electrodermal archaeologyAfter all those surveys on parietal lobes and parietal evolution, some years ago we began investigating some functions particularly associated with the parietal cortex, and generically labeled as visuospatial integration. Some visuospatial behaviors can be inferred in fossils, according to anatomical and archaeological evidence. In my lab, we are interested […]

- Who needs an osteologist? (Installment 52)From bioarchaeologist Megan Perry come a couple screen shots from Blade Runner 2049:Oh hey, the scapulae are upside down with the socket part of the ball-and-socket joint pointing in towards the middle of the body. Total week 1 rookie osteology mistake!The clavicles are a bit hard to see, but are also wrong, with the lateral end weirdly pointing to the middl […]

- 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 […]
