Things I love about my job

This week I'm teaching students about human evolutionary history.

First off, there are some really great visual resources for this topic on Wikipedia.

But secondly, I have something of a dilemma: we've actually managed to cover all the topics I've sought to cover this semester.

Student nature being what it is, I'm sure my students would be fine with me saying, "Okay, go forth."

Instead, though, I've been trying to think: what have I left out?

And I realized, while biking in to campus, I have some things about the evolution of brain size, but I haven't directly addressed the question of, "Why big brains?"

To the internet. Google brought me to this article:

https://www.nature.com/articles/d41586-018-05197-8

It's fun to see where things stand in this field.
