Modern human brain originated in Africa around 1.7 million years ago

The human brain as we know it today is relatively young. It evolved about 1.7 million years ago when the culture of stone tools in Africa became increasingly complex.


They already walked upright, but their brains were only about half the size of today's humans.


The researchers used computed tomography to examine the skulls of Homo fossils that lived in Africa and Asia 1 to 2 million years ago.




I mean, no denying we ALL come from Africa. This was a cool read. Crazy to think how much we have evolved in 2 million years.
