However, not all of them distinguish specific Neanderthal populations from various geographic areas, evolutionary periods, or other extinct humans. Nothing is certain (from unearthed bones) about the shape of soft parts such as eyes, ears, and lips of Neanderthals.[7]. Factor analysis identifies combinations of variables that account for morphometric covariation among a given sample (19, 20). Edited by Henry C. Harpending, University of Utah, Salt Lake City, UT, and approved November 26, 2001 (received for review August 20, 2001). The best support for this hypothesis comes from genetic evidence for an African origin of extant human populations between 100,000 and 200,000 years ago, and for divergence between humans and Neanderthals about 500,000–600,000 years ago (10–12). Variations in facial size probably contribute to much of the variation in browridge size and other correlates of facial retraction evident within recent H. sapiens (5, 6, 14, 17). Thus, temporal lobe elongation relative to cranial size rotates the entire face below the anterior cranial fossa (reviewed in ref. Many recent human crania fall outside the supposed range of AMHS variation for some features, and a few skulls generally attributed to AH fall within the range of AMHS variation (7, 8). 7 and 8). However, measurements of facial retraction and vault globularity completely discriminate between the two taxa with no overlap (Table 2). The age at which juveniles can be indirectly inferred from their tooth morphology, development and emergence. (A and B) TPS analysis based on least-squared superimposition (see Materials and Methods) of modern human (target) and Broken Hill (warp, in green; A), and Guattari (warp, in green; B). The results, summarized in Fig. Download Full PDF Package. Notably the neanderthal head is much longer, with a more pronounced facial front. 453. Modern humans have the slowest body growth of any mammal during childhood (the period between infancy and puberty) with lack of growth during this period being made up later in an adolescent growth spurt. thought that the large Neanderthal noses were an adaptation to the cold,[20] but primate and arctic animal studies have shown sinus size reduction in areas of extreme cold rather than enlargement in accordance with Allen's rule. In fact the main difference between Neandertals and modern humans was reported in the vertebral column. [21] However Neanderthals in Spain date back to 700,000 years, prior to them living in the Middle East. It should be emphasized that this is assumed from the larger adult brain size by comparison with modern humans, and not on the basis of available data from immature specimens (Tillier, 1986, 1989; 1992). PDF. Likewise, variations in neurocranial globularity presumably derive from multiple interactions between portions of the brain and the size and shape of the cranial base (17, 28, 35). These morphological changes, some of which may have occurred because of relative size increases in the temporal and possibly the frontal lobes, occur early in ontogeny, and their effects on facial retraction and neurocranial globularity discriminate AMHS from AH crania. ↵† To whom reprint requests should be addressed. [citation needed]. As a preliminary effort, we first used TPS and EDMA analyses of landmarks that include major loci of cranial growth to compare the pattern of shape differences between adult AMHS and two taxa of AH: Neanderthals and African archaic Homo. Growing Young. Facial retraction and neurocranial globularity probably discriminate between AH and AMHS human crania better than Day and Stringer's (1) characters because of the effects of integration. First, anterior cranial base length (e.g., from sella to foramen cecum) is ≈15–20% longer relative to overall cranial size in AMHS than in either taxon of AH. Geometric morphometric comparisons of AH and AMHS cranial form. [22][23] This may be because of gene flow from early modern humans in the Levantine corridor or the fact that the European Neanderthal phenotype is a specialized climatic adaptation. In addition, temporal and frontal lobe sizes influence the size of the middle and anterior cranial fossae, respectively. Moreover, because the cranial base floor is the roof of the face, cranial base flexion influences facial orientation relative to the anterior cranial fossa (reviewed in ref. Both Neanderthals and modern humans grow very large brains, but while Neanderthals also grew exceptionally large faces, modern human facial growth rates are clearly reduced ( Fig. Cranial capacity of Peking man is 1000 cc. Aleix Martinez explains why facial expressions often are not accurate indicators of emotion. Morphometric analysis of the ontogeny of these autapomorphies indicates that the developmental changes that led to modern human cranial form derive from a combination of shifts in cranial base angle, cranial fossae length and width, and facial length. [30] Arthur Keith in 1931 wrote, "Apparently Neanderthal children assumed the appearances of maturity at an earlier age than modern children. CRISPR-Cas9 gene editing can improve the effectiveness of spermatogonial stem cell transplantation in mice and livestock, a study finds. 1 summarizes the initial (untransformed) factor solution of the AMHS sample in which factors 1–3 explain 61% of the sample variance. The brain space of the skull, and so most likely the brain itself, were larger than in modern humans. Download. (AH) and AMHS. The cranial vault of Neandertals is often characterized by a suite of traits including an occipital bun, suprainiac fossa, nuchal torus, as well as a low and long skull shape. 25 and 28). 23). The following is a list of physical traits that distinguish Neanderthals from modern humans. Chris Stringer. PDF. First, most of the features are difficult to use as phylogenetic characters because they describe cranial vault globularity, and are thus not structurally or developmentally independent. Although the mean values for all features in Table 1 differ significantly (P < 0.05) between the two samples, they do not completely separate AH and AMHS (see also refs. Table 2 provides details of how these variables were measured and standardized. When a Neanderthal was found in 1908 in Southern France, his spine was bowed. These two structural modules not only explain much of the covariation among traditional diagnostic features of AMHS (1–4), but also do a better job of discriminating AH and AMHS crania (see refs. 6, pp. 1c and Supplementary Fig. Fig. ANOVA and comparison of sample ranges were used to test the hypothesis that structural changes identified by the factor analysis discriminate between AH and AMHS. Fig. Untransformed factor scores of external linear measurements (see Materials and Methods) that quantify most of the proposed diagnostic cranial characters of AMHS in Table 1. 1) because it better quantifies vault curvature in the coronal plane; canine fossa depth was measured as the maximum subtense between zygomaxillare and alare; supraorbital torus size/shape was quantified by using Lahr's system of grades (ref. The first question which should be addressed in any discussion of the origin and evolution of Homo sapiens is which diagnosis of the species is going to be used. Copyright © 2021 National Academy of Sciences. In this paper, I will use the term H. sapie… Variation in this feature may be a function of maxillary arch retraction relative to the zygomatic, but could also reflect maxillary sinus expansion into the infraorbital region. In fact, several recent studies show that the major differences in cranial growth between Neanderthals and AMHS arise prenatally or perinatally (36). [27][28][29] The possibility that Neanderthal childhood growth was different was first raised in 1928 by the excavators of the Mousterian rock-shelter of a Neanderthal juvenile. The common shapes of the nose are not known but in general it was likely more robust, and possibly slightly larger, than in modern humans. Neanderthals are characterized by a multitude of distinctive cranial, mandibular, dental, and postcranial anatomical features (Fig. It is intriguing but still premature to speculate whether such neural differences relate to possible behavioral differences between AH and AMHS (42). In contrast, browridge size and frontal angle contribute to most of the variation in factor 2, and canine fossa depth explains most of the variation in factor 3. Variables outside the shaded box have factor loadings greater than 0.50. (AH) and to test hypotheses about the changes in cranial development that underlie the origin of modern human cranial form. Neanderthal crania are characterized by a prognathic midface, a large nasal aperture, and massive brow ridges. In a later study, Lieberman et al. Increased cranial base flexion relative to cranial base length and brain size is associated with increased globularity of the brain, hence of the braincase (24, 35, 39, 40). Fossil crania lacking the upper face were not included. Recent evolutionary developmental studies show that major changes in form associated with speciation typically result from ontogenetically early alterations in the regulation of growth, leading to multiple correlated phenotypic novelties (15, 16). The Neanderthal face tended to be larger, with a brain case set back in a longer skull. Across Europe, many near-complete archaic Homo sapiens crania have been discovered, including one, part of an almost-complete skeleton, found in northern Spain at Atapuerca. The large number of classic Neanderthal traits is significant because some examples of paleolithic and even modern Homo sapiens may sometimes show one or even a few of these traits, but not most or all of them at the same time. Table 2 compares ranges and degrees of cranial variation for a number of features to test whether the two structural variables identified above, neurocranial globularity and facial retraction, discriminate between AH and AMHS better than the features traditionally thought to be diagnostic of AMHS. Evidence for early ontogenetic divergence together with evolutionary stasis of taxon-specific patterns of ontogeny is consistent with separation of Neanderthals and modern humans at the species level. Euclidean distance matrix analysis (EDMA) was also used to quantify significant differences in three-dimensional shape, by dividing all interlandmark lengths by a global geometric mean, and by using nonparametric bootstrapping (n = 100) to determine confidence intervals of 0.90 (α = 0.10) for each size-corrected linear distance (32, 33). However, it is reasonable to hypothesize that the evolution of AMHS cranial form may have been caused by changes in just a few variables that influence the relative spatial position of the face, cranial base, and neurocranium. The magnitude of autapomorphic traits in specimens differ in time. Visualization of relative warp analyses suggests that, compared to modern humans, the Neanderthal mandible was characterized by relatively less … In light of recent results, they’re not so sure. Two-dimensional landmarks were digitized from lateral radiographs of a longitudinal study of six male and six female recent H. sapiens from the Denver Growth Study (details in ref. Although a universally acceptable definition of the species unit is a quixotic endeavor, both phylogenetic and evolutionary species concepts agree that species should be monophyletic lineages, evolving separately from other lineages (43, 44). Two non-specific indicators of stress during development are found in teeth, which record stresses, such as periods of food scarcity or illness, that disrupt normal dental growth. 3C). Paradoxically, our own species, Homo sapiens, is one of the most poorly defined species of hominids. The most frequently used diagnosis for AMHS is Day and Stringer's (1), which is based solely on cranial features (listed in Table 1), and which has since been expanded and scrutinized (2–6). Trinkaus (2011) suggests that early modern humans found at the sites of Cioclovina, Mladeč, Muierii and Oase represent a continuation of traits typical of Neandertals, as Researchers are still trying to understand what causes this strong correlation between neural and social networks. 5 ). [21] Therefore, Rae concludes that the design of the large and extensive Neanderthal nose was evolved for the hotter climate of the Middle East and went unchanged when the Neanderthals entered Europe. 9) thus consider H. sapiens to be a morphologically diverse species with archaic and anatomically modern grades. 3 shows that, in contrast to humans, facial retraction decreases during Pan ontogeny. Schaaffhausen, Hermann. We do not capture any email address. For some reason, this became the popular image for Neanderthals. Between stages I and II (while the brain is still growing but cranial base flexion is complete; ref. The most obvious difference is that the AMHS face is much smaller relative to overall cranial size than in either group of AH. Of these patterns of covariation, the association between browridge size and frontal angle (factor 2) is related structurally to facial retraction, another key proposed structural autapomorphy of AMHS (24, 25). Superimposed on TPS are EDMA results: red lines indicate scaled linear distances that are significantly longer in target than warp crania; blue lines indicate scaled linear distances that are significantly shorter in target than warp crania. Finally, increases in relative temporal lobe size also contribute to reorienting the face more vertically underneath the anterior cranial fossa because the most anterior points of the middle cranial fossae (the PM points) lie on the posterior margin of the face, the PM plane, which has been shown to be tightly constrained (90°) relative to the orientation of the axis of the orbits within humans and between primates (28, 41). 28), and anteroposterior facial length relative to anterior cranial base length affects facial projection relative to the neurocranium (reviewed in ref. Astronomers thought they’d finally figured out where gold and other heavy elements in the universe came from. Thank you for your interest in spreading the word on PNAS. Levantine Neanderthals had phenotypes significantly more similar to modern humans than European Neanderthals (classic Neanderthals). Neanderthals are characterized by a suite of distinctive cranial, mandibular, dental, and postcranial anatomical features. The other indicator, fluctuating asymmetry, manifests as random departures from symmetry in paired biological structures (such as right and left teeth). A team of University of Tübingen researchers has shown that Neanderthals sustained similar levels of head injuries to the earliest anatomically modern humans in Eurasia. As noted above, increases in relative temporal and frontal lobe size probably cause relative elongation of the anterior cranial base in AMHS, and may also underlie increased basicranial flexion (28). Montagu, A. Factor 1 (which accounts for 26% of variance) separates variables that quantify neurocranial globularity; factors 2 and 3 (which together account for 35% of the variance) separate variables related to facial retraction. Here, we examine cranial variation among Pleistocene and recent human fossils by using a model of cranial growth to identify unique derived features (autapomorphies) that reliably distinguish fossils attributed to “anatomically modern” H. sapiens (AMHS) from those attributed to various taxa of “archaic” Homo spp. Regarding anatomical evidence of Neanderthal linguistic and cognitive capabilities, Neanderthals possessed cranial capacities as large as or larger than modern humans. Hublin, R. Machiarelli, M. Ponce de León, H. Seidler, F. Spoor, C. Stringer, and C. Zollikofer for access to CT scans and/or radiographs of fossils. 18) and from lateral radiographs of a cross-sectional sample of Pan troglodytes (details in ref. A short … Within the west Asian and European record, there are five broad groups of pathology or injury noted in Neanderthal skeletons. 23). Arthritis was common in the older Neanderthal population, specifically targeting areas of articulation such as the ankle (Shanidar III), spine and hips (La Chapelle-aux-Saints 'Old Man'), arms (La Quina 5, Krapina, Feldhofer) knees, fingers and toes. Download Free PDF. Determining the proximate causes of these autapomorphies is speculative without a more sophisticated understanding of cranial morphogenesis and without enough well-preserved infant and juvenile crania to compare directly cranial ontogeny in AH and AMHS. (1989). In contrast, development of relative cranial base length, relative facial size, and cranial base angulation is different in H. sapiens ontogeny, as the neurocranium remains highly globular and the face stays retracted under the anterior cranial base. 2. After neural growth is complete in Pan (between stages II and III), the relative lengths of the cranial fossae continue to shorten, facial height and length continue to increase, and the cranial base extends, rotating the face dorsally relative to the neurocranium (Fig. A paper using the classic multiregional concept of H. sapiens [1,2] would probably need to cover the whole Pleistocene history of the human genus, while the much more restricted usage of authors such as Tattersall & Schwartz [3] might require a focus limited to a small set of middle–late Pleistocene fossils. Outlines are selected specimens (targets in black, warps in green). 2; see also refs. In addition, there are no well-preserved fossil Neanderthal crania with undistorted or complete cranial bases, and none younger than 2.2 postnatal years, by which time most cranial base growth (e.g., flexion) is complete (18). Second, the anterior cranial base (and with it the face) is more flexed relative to the posterior cranial base in AMHS (as indicated by arrows in Fig. Ontogenetic and interspecific studies demonstrate the effects of these variables on cranial shape among human and nonhuman primates. We have much to learn about the complex processes of cranial growth and integration, but the above results highlight how efforts to tease apart these processes have the potential to yield better characters for testing systematic hypotheses, and to identify possible targets of selection during speciation. Ontogenetic trajectories in Neanderthals. Mandibular characters such as the chin and dental size measurements were not included in the analysis (see ref. Transition from H. erectus to the LCA of humans and Neanderthals is characterized by a marked increase in brain size (Rightmire, 2004), and this trend is continued in the descendant species. All external measurements were taken from casts at the American Museum of Natural History (New York), with the exception of the recent human sample and Skhul V, which were taken from original specimens. 3E). Download PDF Package. Futher comparative and ontogenetic analyses are needed to test more fully the effects of cranial base flexion, anterior cranial base length, facial length, and temporal and/or frontal lobe size on facial retraction and neurocranial globularity in Homo. 3A). We thank C. Dean, J. Jernvall, P. O'Higgins, G. Manzi, D. Pilbeam, R. Potts, F. Spoor, and several anonymous reviewers for helpful comments; K. Mowbray, G. Sawyer, I. Tattersall, and M. Morgan for access to skeletal collections; and D. Hunt, B. Frohlich, J.-J. The cranial capacity is estimated at about 1,220 cubic centimeters, being about midway between that of the Pithecanthropus and modern man. Neanderthal crania are characterized by: a.small flat faces b.the absence of brow ridges. ABSTRACT Neanderthals are one of the ... aperture morphology, none approached the medial projection condition found in our Neanderthal sample. (C and D) EDMA of four modern humans versus Broken Hill and Bodo (C) and Guattari and Gibraltar 1 (D). Variables compared include the previously proposed diagnostic cranial characters of AMHS (Table 1) and three additional variables included on the basis of the factor analysis results (see below) that have recently been proposed as structural determinants of AMHS cranial form (5–7, 14, 24–27): neurocranial globularity, defined as the roundedness of the cranial vault in the sagittal, coronal, and transverse planes; facial retraction, defined as the anteroposterior position of the face relative to the anterior cranial base and neurocranium; and facial prognathism, defined as the orientation of the lower face relative to the upper face. Researchers were able to examine dental, cranial, and postcranial material, allowing the assessment of dental and skeletal maturation with age. AMHS also have smaller midfaces than Neanderthals but not the archaic Africans because of autapomorphic midfacial prognathism in Neanderthals (2). This is closely related to degenerative joint disease, which can range from normal, use-related degeneration to painful, debilitating restriction of movement and deformity and is seen in varying degree in the Shanidar skeletons (I–IV). Some people[who?] Transition from H. erectus to the LCA of humans and Neanderthals is characterized by a marked increase in brain size (Rightmire, 2004), and this trend is continued in the descendant species. The fragments of crania from Schwaan and Plau, on account both of their anatomical conformation and of the circumstances under which they were found, may probably be assigned to a barbarous, aboriginal people, which inhabited the North of Europe before the Germani; and, as is proved by the discovery of similar remains at Minsk in Russia, and in the Neanderthal near Elberfeld, mnst … The pattern of fractures, along with the absence of throwing weapons, suggests that they may have hunted by leaping onto their prey and stabbing or even wrestling it to the ground.[24]. The above results indicate that most of the differences previously identified between AH and AMHS crania relate to changes in facial retraction and overall neurocranial globularity. Included variables quantify most of the previously proposed diagnostic characters of AMHS in Table 1: frontal angle, parietal angle, and occipital angle were measured following Howells (22); vault height relative to length was measured as basion-vertex/nasion-opisthocranion; vault width relative to height (measured as euryon–euryon/bregma–vertex) was substituted for bregma-asterion chord/biasterionic breadth (from ref. Variables are: 1, frontal angle (FRA); 2, parietal angle (PAA); 3, occipital angle (OCA); 4, vault width relative to height (VWH); 5, canine fossa depth (CFD); 6, vault height relative to length (VHL); and 7, browridge size/shape. Red lines indicate scaled linear distances ≥10% longer in AMHS than warp crania; blue lines indicate scaled linear distances ≥10% shorter in AMHS than warp crania; dashed lines indicate linear distances calculated by using only Broken Hill (C) or Guattari (D) from a smaller subset of landmarks. 22 and 28 for landmark definitions). After Procrustes superimposition (29, 30), Thin Plate Spline (TPS) analysis (www.usm.maine.edu/%7Ewalker/; ref. To examine the structural and ontogenetic bases of differences in facial form between AH and AMHS, two morphometric analyses were calculated by using subsets of 17 landmarks digitized directly from computed tomography scans of fossil hominids measured ETDIPS (www.cc.nih.gov/cip/software/etdips/) and from radiographs of the ontogenetic samples of H. sapiens and P. troglodytes. Second, we use ANOVA and comparisons of sample ranges to test whether these structural differences discriminate reliably between AMHS and AH. The presently available sam However, the available sample of infant AH crania is too small and insufficiently complete, particularly in the basicranium, to test directly the effects of facial size, cranial base flexion, anterior cranial base length, and middle and anterior cranial fossae size on cranial ontogeny. Thus, as characters, neurocranial globularity and facial retraction appear to represent AMHS autapomorphies. A 2007 genetic study suggested some Neanderthals may have had red hair.[4][5]. Evidence of infections on Neanderthal skeletons is usually visible in the form of lesions on the bone, which are created by systemic infection on areas closest to the bone. Teeth do not grow in size after they form nor do they produce new enamel, so enamel hypoplasia and fluctuating asymmetry provide a permanent record of developmental stresses occurring in infancy and childhood. Neanderthal limbs were robust and distally shortened. (C) H. sapiens stage II (target), stage I (warp). 1861. [35], This research supports the occurrence of much more rapid physical development in Neanderthals than in modern human children. Many researchers (e.g., ref. Endocranial volume was comparable to that of modern humans (~ 1450 cc). Basicranial flexion is important because it positions most of the face beneath the anterior cranial fossa. A second, more fundamental problem is their failure to discriminate reliably between “archaic” Homo spp. In addition, it would be interesting to know more about the proximate causes of these changes, and their possible adaptive bases (if any). 5 ). 18). This has been argued to both support[32] and question[33][34] the existence of a maturation difference between Neanderthals and modern humans. Recent geometric morphometric comparisons (36) show that Neanderthal and AMHS crania have distinctive, ontogenetically early growth patterns that may result from shifts in basicranial and facial development. These usually take the form of stab wounds, as seen on Shanidar III, whose lung was probably punctured by a stab wound to the chest between the eighth and ninth ribs. Humans have an unusual life history, with an early weaning age, long childhood, late first reproduction, short interbirth intervals, and long lifespan. Ranges overlap considerably for these variables, especially browridge size/shape and facial prognathism. A major source of this confusion is the lack of established unique derived features (autapomorphies) of “anatomically modern” H. sapiens (AMHS). Download PDF. All radiographs were compared at three ontogenetic stages: stage I, 50% through the neurocranial growth phase (≈3 years in H. sapiens and 1.5 years in P. troglodytes); stage II, at the end of the neurocranial growth phase (≈6 years in H. sapiens and 3 years in P. troglodytes); and stage III, adult (based on third molar eruption).
