Human Nature and Evolution

William D. Hopkins, PhD, takes a multidisciplinary approach to studying human evolution, particularly the evolution of human language. Through the study of nonhuman primates, the Hopkins lab is increasing our understanding of the roles that behavior, laterality, neuroanatomy, cellular organization and cortical function may have played in the evolution of human language.

  • Hopkins lab poster presentation: Claudio Cantalupo, Wednesday, Nov. 17, 1 p.m. 2 p.m.
