Human Brain & Diet Examination
One of the primary characteristics that distinguish humans from other species is our large brain. As a result, we are a species capable of thinking, reasoning, and learning beyond any other species. Yet, what caused humans (Homo sapiens) to have larger brains than other species? A multitude of research and data suggest that the large brain size of humans is connected to changes in diet, specifically the consumption of cooked meat. In this examination you will examine some of the research and discussion concerning this topic.
Objective: Discuss the correlation between the change in diet and increase in brain size during hominid evolution
