Neanderthal teeth grew no faster than comparable modern humans'

that did not support a shorter childhood for the Neanderthals.

Enticing though it may be, these new findings haven't convinced the researchers that a Neanderthal childhood was equal to a modern human's.

"The missing key bit of data to show that would be evidence for when the first molar tooth erupted in the Neanderthals, and we simple have no evidence of when that occurred," she said.

The length of time is important, the researchers say, because unlike all other primates, humans have an extended period of childhood growth, during which brain matures both in size and through experiences. Some earlier hominids matured far more quickly than modern humans.

"The question is when exactly did that pattern of development evolve in the growth of humans," she said.
