Dr. Antoine Balzeau applies new imaging methodologies to the study of human evolution. Such technologies allow the study of complex inner anatomical features and the discovery and description of unknown morphologies. Dr. Balzeau will present some recent results on the study of brain asymmetries in fossil hominins, and on the description of previously unknown anatomical structures on key specimens such has Liang Bua 1 (the Hobbit) and Broken Hill. For instance, the study of the Hobbit reveals new pathologies and some taxonomically relevant features. Dr. Balzeau will also present new results on the La Ferrassie site: through the re-study of the archives and collections held in the Musée de l’Homme, over 50 new human remains, including some Neandertal fossils were identified.
