Origini, forma e (dis)funzioni dell’apparato masticatorio in Homo sapiens

Una prospettiva darwiniana
  • Andrea Papini,

The anatomical-functional structure with which human beings are equipped today has its roots in our evolutionary history: knowing the latter helps us understand why our body looks like this and functions in this way. Every living being, including Homo sapiens, is the result of a progressive stratification of forms that have adapted to environmental pressures which have shaped their morphology from deep time until today. Our masticatory apparatus (evolutionarily very recent) began to develop with the advent of mammals around 250 million years ago, structuring itself with a unique morphology and function, closely linked to the upright posture typical of the Homo genus and to globular encephalisation, a characterizing peculiarity Homo sapiens.

Andrea Papini has been working as a dentist since 1991 in Prato; passionate about gnathology, he searched paleoanthropology for the species-specific physiological foundations that characterize the chewing of Homo sapiens. He is the author and co-author of scientific articles on anatomy, gnathology, paleoanthropology, neurosurgery.
