Title Can simulating evolution on a computer explain our enormous brains? Media name/outlet Los Angeles Times Media type Web Country/Territory United States Date 23/05/18 Description Susanne Shultz, who studies evolutionary biology at the University of Manchester took issue not with the methodology, but with the conclusions that were gleaned from the work.
"I have a fairly strong opinions about the utility of trying to divide social and ecological challenges into mutually exclusive categories," she said. "After reading the paper several times, I am still convinced that the model and results are more consistent with a 'socio-ecological' brain. Their argument that they find support for an ecological and not social brain just isn't supported by their results."
