Morphometric, allometric, and shape data indicate that LB1 is not a microcephalic or pygmy. LB1's brain/body size ratio scales like that of an australopithecine, but its endocast shape resembles that of Homo erectus. LB1 has derived frontal and temporal lobes and a lunate sulcus in a derived position, which are consistent with capabilities for higher cognitive processing.||Publication Type:||Journal Article||Source of Publication:||Science, 308(5719), p. 242-245||Publisher:||American Association for the Advancement of Science||Place of Publication:||New York||ISSN:||0036-8075||Field of Research (FOR):||060805 Animal Neurobiology||Peer Reviewed:||Yes||HERDC Category Description:||C1 Refereed Article in a Scholarly Journal||Statistics to Oct 2018:||Visitors: 429
