Abstract

Cognitive abilities of humans are superior to that of non-human primates (NHP). Differences in genes, gene expression, cellular composition and response, neural circuit, and brain volume between humans and NHP underlying cognitive abilities are discussed, with a focus on cortical expansion, prefrontal expansion, language-related areas, and the adaptation of longer life spans in humans.
