The discovery of cerebral diversity: an unwelcome scientific revolution Todd M. Preuss; 8. Pheromonal communication and socialization Brunetto Chiarelli; 9. Revisiting australopithecine visual striate cortex: newer data from chimpanzee and human brains suggest it could have been reduced during australopithecine times Ralph L. Holloway, Douglas C. Broadfield and Michael S. Yuan; 10. Structural symmetries and asymmetries in human and chimpanzee brains Emmanuel Gilissen; 11. Language areas of the hominid brain: a dynamic communicative shift on the upper east side planum Patrick J. Gannon, Nancy M. Kheck and Patrick R. Hof; 12.
