Evolving Brain: Neuroanthropology, Emergence, and Cognitive Frontiers

Arthur Saniotis

Abstract


Emergence is an interesting concept for explaining human evolution. An understanding of emergence enables us to define the role of novelty and creativity in human beings and their complex behavioural repertoire. Emergence merits a neuroscientific approach since the brain is a process of biological evolution, therefore, signifying the biological basis of human consciousness and experience. In this paper I outline three areas of emergence and the human brain which may further assist us in understanding the relationship between brain and culture.
