Neanderthals Live On In Some Of Us: DNA Study


(Reuters) - Neanderthals and modern humans interbred, probably when early humans first began to migrate out of Africa, according to a genetic study released on Thursday.

People of European, Asian and Australasian origin all have Neanderthal DNA, but not Africans, researchers reported in Friday's issue of the journal Science.

The study may help resolve the long-running debate over whether Neanderthals and modern humans did more than simply live side by side in Europe and the Middle East.

"Those of us who live outside Africa carry a little Neanderthal DNA in us," said Svante Paabo of the Max Planck Institute in Munich, Germany, who led the study.

"The proportion of Neanderthal-inherited genetic material is about 1 to 4 percent. It is a small but very real proportion of ancestry in non-Africans today," Dr. David Reich of Harvard Medical School in Boston, who worked on the study, told reporters in a telephone briefing.

I actually seem to recall that the Neanders were less agressive than our present genome, which helped lead to thier extinction.
You may want to continue to look for other reasons for behavioural issues, but it it was her looks, well then......

I'd say Payton you had a rather "Handsome" woman. See below. XD

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Neanderthals#Distinguishing_physical_traits
- Projecting mid-face
- Low, flat, elongated skull
- Supraorbital torus, a prominent, trabecular (spongy) brow ridge
- Lack of a protruding chin
- Bony projections on the sides of the nasal opening, projecting nose
- Long collar bones, wider shoulders
- Barrel-shaped rib cage
- Larger round finger tips
- Large kneecaps


j/k ;)

Looks like a melding of both types of characters from the "Dark Crystal".

More BBC science for Neanderthals, just in the last few days (see link and excerpt below). Apparently, they have more GPU than CPU in their brains, LOL. ;) Say for example, if their visual processing is as good as a HD8000 card, their central processing is only as good as a Pentium I. XD
From: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-21759233
"The research team explored the idea that the ancestor of Neanderthals left Africa and had to adapt to the longer, darker nights and murkier days of Europe. The result was that Neanderthals evolved larger eyes and a much larger visual processing area at the backs of their brains.

The humans that stayed in Africa, on the other hand, continued to enjoy bright and beautiful days and so had no need for such an adaption. Instead, these people, our ancestors, evolved their frontal lobes, associated with higher-level thinking, before they spread across the globe.

Eiluned Pearce of Oxford University decided to check this theory. She compared the skulls of 32 Homo sapiens and 13 Neanderthals.

Ms Pearce found that Neanderthals had significantly larger eye sockets - by an average of 6mm from top to bottom.

Although this seems like a small amount, she said that it was enough for Neanderthals to use significantly more of their brains to process visual information.

'Since Neanderthals evolved at higher latitudes, more of the Neanderthal brain would have been dedicated to vision and body control, leaving less brain to deal with other functions like social networking,' she told BBC News."

So they could speak higher and have better night vision, but apparently do not know how to use facebook... XD

Europe will never work as a one unified system. Too much disparity in the cultures. That's why it's so screwed up. Speaking for my ethnicity, the Greeks will never trust the Germans again about anything they say or do. They were so much better off before the EU. The EU (and the US) need to follow icelands lead and throw all the damn bankers in jail and get back to what works for each country. Regardless of what their genetic back ground is.

EDIT: By the way, my second wife looks more neanderthal than my 1st wife. It was the black hair and blue eyes that got to me. I'd love to go to France someday and try to find her.
