Brain Endocasts is the one complete, single-volume paintings dealing solely and uniformly with fossil hominid mind endocasts. Never-before-published photos come including simply obtainable, coherent descriptions to create an in depth reference at the paleoneurological facts for human evolution. every one access deals crucial details relating to the positioning, courting, institutions, and morphology of a given endocast. The textual content additionally covers the most recent methodologies and strategies to be had for learning endocasts. additionally, a concise precis indicates how those fossil files give a contribution to our figuring out of human evolution and behaviour.

Sample text

A: Endocast is submerged in a large beaker filled to the overflow outlet, and the displaced water is captured in a beaker of known weight. B: The beaker holding the displaced water is weighed, giving the weight/volume of the endocast. weigh it in water. The difference should be the volume of the endocast. Accurate and reliable measurements require nonporous endocast materials, clean glassware, clean (preferably distilled) water, and accurate balances and weights. It is always distressing to watch bubbles arise due to improper or incomplete coating of the more porous portions of the endocast, but such are the dangers inherent in paleoneurology.
