    About This Project

    The neck is involved in most everyday behaviors. Still, we do not understand how specific behaviors shape neck anatomy. I will study this connection between behavior and anatomy by examining the bones of primates that use their necks in specific ways. "Tree-gougers" damage trees using their teeth. Here I will study their neck bones to identify features useful for stabilization. This information will allow us to better interpret the kinds of behaviors for which our own necks evolved.
