Your Inner Fish [electronic resource]

Have you ever wondered why our bodies look the way they do? In this three part series, paleobiologist Neil Shubin sets out to find the answers in a surprising place: the ancient animal ancestors that shaped our anatomy. In Your Inner Fish , he and his colleagues discover a fossilized fish, known as Tiktaalik, that had enough strength in its front fins to heave itself out of the water 375 million years ago. Remarkably, we can trace the ancestry of our own hands and arms back to these fins. Viewers also meet the scientists who discovered the DNA recipe for constructing the human hand - an essential gene shared today with a surprising number of other animals.

From them we inherited our versatile hands, amazing vision and capable brains - but also some less beneficial traits, including our bad backs and terrible sense of smell. Find out which beneficial traits-and some less useful ones-our primate progenitors bequeathed us.

Your Inner Monkey [electronic resource]

Have you ever wondered why our bodies look the way they do? In this three part series, paleobiologist Neil Shubin sets out to find the answers in a surprising place: the ancient animal ancestors that shaped our anatomy. In Your Inner Monkey , he travels from Ethiopia to Florida to explain how we inherited our versatile hands, amazing vision and capable brains from our primate progenitors - but also some less beneficial traits, including our bad backs and terrible sense of smell. Shubin concludes by tracing the evolution of the human brain - from a tiny swelling on the nerve cord of a wormlike creature, to the three-part architecture of a shark's brain and the complex brain of primates.
