Your Eye, My Eye, and the Eye of the Aye-Aye
Lecture title: Your Eye, My Eye, and the Eye of the Aye-Aye: Evolution of Human Vision from 65 Million Years Ago to the Present. How did humans come to have the best eyesight of any living mammal? Look through the eyes of primate ancestors with Dr. Chris Kirk, UT-Austin professor of anthropology. Dr. Kirk explains how his research related to the evolution of primate sensory systems helps us understand human visual adaptations in the larger context of primate evolution. More info about Dr. Kirk's discovery of fossilized primates in west Texas can be found in an article from The University of Texas.
