  The central goal of the In the Light of Evolution (ILE) series is to promote the evolutionary sciences through state-of-the-art colloquia--in the series of Arthur M. Sackler colloquia sponsored by the National Academy of Sciences--and their published proceedings. Each installment explores evolutionary perspectives on a particular biological topic that is scientifically intriguing but also has Cited by: Instructions: Place a very small black dot on the center of a white piece of paper. Close one eye and stare directly ahead. Hold the paper at arms length in front of you and move the paper until the spot "disappears" (usually this is occurs when the dot is just a bit below eye level - it is important).

  The “radiator” theory of brain evolution is proposed to account for “mosaic evolution” whereby brain size began to increase rapidly in the genus Homo well over a million years after bipedalism had been selected for in early hominids. Because hydrostatic pressures differ across columns of fluid depending on orientation (posture), vascular systems of early bipeds became reoriented so Cited by:   By Maria Popova. Last year, Horizon’s fascinating documentary on how music works was one of our most-liked pickings of But perhaps even more fascinating than the subject of how music works is the question of why it makes us feel the way it does. Today, we try to answer it with seven essential books that bridge music, emotion and.

  One of the greatest gift of Allah. The brain and its impact on the living existence is also great. The function and malfunction of brain can effect our behavior. In this presentation we try to cover certain angles of brain which have a direct or indirect influence on our behavior.   Abstract. The chapter explains the American neuroscientist Paul MacLean’s concept of the “Triune Brain,” illustrates its basic structure, and discusses the evolution and functions of the major brain structures involved in instinctual and emotional behavior in animals and : Kevin J.

Brain Behavior and Evolution. K likes. Brain, Behavior and Evolution' is a scientific journal that provides a unique outlet for comparative neurobiologyFollowers: K. In doing so, the book carefully maps out each stage of the evolutionary process, from anatomical changes such as bipedalism and increase in brain size, to cognitive and behavioral changes, such as the ability to cook, laugh, and use language to form communities through religion and story-telling/5(9).

Brain and Behavior is a peer-reviewed, open access, interdisciplinary journal, providing rapid publication of scientifically sound research across neurology, neuroscience, psychology and journal publishes quality research reports that enhance understanding of the brain and behavior.

The journal strives to help authors and look for reasons to publish rather than reject. It is the sixth in a series of Colloquia under the general title "In the Light of Evolution." Specifically, In Light of Evolution: Brain and Behavior focuses on the field of evolutionary neuroscience that now includes Brain vast array of different approaches, data types, and species.

The book then goes on to consider the relationships between different forms of explanation in biology, and the role of brain behaviour students in these relationships.
