Title: Comparative Primate Birth Mechanics

Speaker: Natalie Laudicina, Dept. of Biomedical Sciences, GVSU

Event Description:

There have been over 60 years of research examining why human childbirth is uniquely hard compared to other primates. In this talk, Dr. Natalie Laudicina will be discussing her dissertation research where she reconstructed how birth would occur in other primates, across 4 million years of hominin evolution, and how she came to some surprising conclusions.
