Scientists discovered ancient fossils that suggest humans may have originated in Europe, not Africa.
New discoveries challenge pre-conceived notions on human's rich history.
Is humankind getting dumber? Natural selection is working against humankind this time.
A new research reveals that the frequency of mothers opting for Caesarean births could greatly impact human evolution, resulting to narrow pelvis and bigger babies.
An orangutan named Rocky has developed the ability to copy human speech, creating vocal-sounding calls and controlling his voice in a "conversational" context.
For the first time outside Asia and Africa, archaeologists have discovered that the capuchin monkeys in Brazil have used stone tools, such as hammers and anvils, for 700 years.
Newly discovered fossils suggest human lineages diverged from gorilla ancestors two million years earlier than previously thought. After dating the remains, researchers say they indicate that apes, and therefore humans, originated in Africa, not Eurasia.
A frozen mammoth carcass excavated from the Siberian Arctic had several spear-related injuries, which suggests humans arrived in the area 10,000 years earlier than previously thought.
A new experiment revealed that capuchin monkeys will punish other monkeys who have been given more food. Yale researchers say this is the first evidence suggesting that the psychology of spite extends deeper into our evolutionary history than previously thought.
Although pitch perception was thought to be unique among humans, researchers recently discovered small monkeys known as marmosets use auditory cues to distinguish between low and high notes, just like we do.
A team of researchers has sequenced the first ancient human genomes from Ireland, shedding light on the origins of Celtic people and their culture.
Researchers say a fossilized femur belongs to an ancient human species that was thought to long be extinct when modern humans came into the picture. This suggests ancient and modern humans could have overlapped.
A new study revealed face mites – microscopic animals that live on our faces and in our hair – evolved along side humans. Moreover, people from different parts of the world host different mite lineages that follow families through generations.
Small talk may be an evolutionary way to establish closeness, and we may have inherited it from the primates. A recent study looks at the way lemurs call out to certain known other lemurs to maintain closeness.
