Primary Instructor:

This course tracks the human life cycle from beginning to end, with comparison to other primates including earlier hominins. The goal is to understand how human growth and development came to be, and how it is being shaped by the modern environment. In the first unit, I will trace human growth and development from gametes through birth, including discussions of prenatal growth, perinatal developmental programming, maternal-fetal conflict, and the evolution of human birth. In the second unit, I discuss postnatal growth and development, including the evolution of childhood, puberty and reproduction, and secular trends in both skeletal and reproductive maturation. The focus of the third unit is adulthood and aging, including efforts to extend both fertility and lifespan. The final unit covers the effects of environmental influences, including climate, stress, and nutrition, on human health and lifespan.
