Why humans developed the best eyesight: Hot Science – Cool Talks!

Your Eye, My Eye, and the Eye of the Aye-Aye”, the next Hot Science-Cool Talks presentation on Friday, December 2, 2011, is a visual treat.  Dr. Chris Kirk will talk about why humans developed the best eyesight out of any living mammal.

Dr. Kirk is an Associate Professor in the Department of Anthropology at The University of Texas at Austin.  He has been studying primate evolution for many years and found a new fossil species, similar to a small, modern day lemur, in West Texas.

If you haven’t been to a Hot Science – Cool Talks presentation before, they’re great! Be sure to come early to Dr. Kirk’s talk in Welch Hall at UT Austin.  You’ll want to have fun with the great activities before the talk!
