Modern Man was Taught to Make Certain Tools by Neanderthals

Modern Man was Taught to Make Certain Tools by Neanderthals
There is mounting evidence that modern man or Homo sapiens was taught a thing or two by his predecessors. Certain tools that were made by Neanderthals were probably passed on to Homo sapiens through the process of imitation.

Queen Sofia of Spain Visits Donana National Park
(Phys.org) —A team of Israeli, Spanish and German researchers has for the first time created a map of gene expression in Neanderthals and Denisovans and has compared them with modern humans. In their paper published in the journal Science, the team describes how they applied epigentics to the study of our two closest known ancestors and discovered variations that might account for their differences in body shape and susceptibility to some modern neurolog ...

Bundeswehr Holds Alpine Adventure Camp 2014
SHANGHAI, CHINA—Neanderthals and modern humans are thought to have interbred at least once—probably in the Middle East—after modern humans left Africa. As a result, today’s Europeans and Asians carry a small amount of Neanderthal DNA. A new analysis of some of those Neanderthal gene variants, and an examination of brain tissues, suggests that today’s Europeans have three times as many Neanderthal genes involved in the breakdown of fats t ...

Modern Europeans Got Their Fat From Neanderthals, New Research Suggests

Source: The Huffington Post

Neanderthals and modern Europeans had something in common: They were fatheads of the same ilk. A new genetic analysis reveals that our brawny cousins had a number of distinct genes involved in the buildup of certain types of fat in their brains and other tissues—a trait shared by today’s Europeans, but not Asians. Because two-thirds of our brains are built of fatty acids, or lipids, the differences in fat composition between Europeans and Asi ...

Contemporary Europeans have as many as three times more Neanderthal variants in genes involved in lipid catabolism than Asians and Africans. Although Neanderthals are extinct, fragments of their genomes persist in modern humans. These shared regions are unevenly distributed across the genome ...
