SciCafe: The Story of the Human Body with Daniel Lieberman


SciCafe Human Body Thumb

As the human species evolved from Paleolithic to modern times, our bodies have changed to fit the world around us. But with the human landscape moving quickly from the Agricultural and Industrial Revolutions to the modern day of smartphones and junk food, are our bodies able to keep up?

In this SciCafe, join evolutionary biologist Daniel Lieberman as he discusses how human bodies evolved from our ape ancestors, and how this evolution continues to affect our bodies and their ailments to this day.

This SciCafe took place at the Museum on November 6, 2013.
