Brain Box presents:


This is a rebroadcast of our interview with Rose Basom on Neanderthal genes in Homo sapiens that originally aired on January 1, 2024.

In this episode, we meet the Science Museum of Virginia’s David and Jane Cohn Scientist, Rose Basom. Rose is a biological anthropologist (you’ll learn what that is) and she talks us through some recent studies that show how genes can express themselves in our behavior, and the distant origins of some of those genes. Tune in – you might learn some things about yourself!

To learn more, visit the Smithsonian Institute’s website on human origins.
