Welcome to Forethought India One-on-One Courses. Our program is designed to provide students with the skills and knowledge necessary to excel in their chosen profession. Our instructor for this course is by Professor David Belin at University of Cambridge
Exploring Human Evolution is a course that explores the fascinating journey of how humans evolved from our primate ancestors to the modern species we are today. The course will cover a wide range of topics, including the fossil record, human genetics, human paleontology, human anatomy, human behavior, and the evolution of human intelligence, language, social structure, cooperation, conflict, morality, art, religion, music, dance, technology, agriculture, cities, and civilizations.
Students will learn about the latest scientific discoveries in human evolution, and they will have the opportunity to critically evaluate different theories and interpretations of the evidence. They will also explore the implications of human evolution for our understanding of ourselves and our place in the world.
This course is open to students from all backgrounds, and no prior knowledge of anthropology or biology is required. It is a valuable course for anyone who is interested in learning more about the fascinating story of human evolution.
Here are some of the key questions that the course will address:
- What does the fossil record tell us about human evolution?
- How can we use genetics to study human evolution?
- What can we learn about human evolution from studying our primate relatives?
- How has human anatomy evolved over time?
- How has human behavior evolved over time?
- How did humans evolve intelligence, language, and social structure?
- How has human evolution been shaped by climate change, global migration, culture, and technology?
- What does the future hold for human evolution?
By the end of this course, students will have a deep understanding of the complex and fascinating process of human evolution. They will be able to apply their knowledge to real-world issues and to develop their own informed perspectives on the future of humanity.
At the end of the program, students will receive a certificate & performance letter by the eductor indicating that they have completed the program and acquired the necessary skills and knowledge to excel in their chosen profession.
Exploring Human Evolution, by Professor David Belin
Professor David Belin is a researcher at Cambridge University who's research field is interested in the neural, cellular and molecular substrates of inter-individual vulnerability to develop impulsive/compulsive disorders such as drug addiction or Obsessive-compulsive disorder. Our working hypothesis is that impulses, originating from the amygdalo insular networks can drive behavior through explicit knowledge involving prefrontal and orbitofrontal loops or implicit mechanisms that instead depend upon the functional relationships of these structures with several functional domains of the striatum.
