About the research
Imagine if Neandertals were still alive. Would we be able to host breakdance competitions with Neandertals showing of their skills to, say, Grandmaster Flash's beats? That is -with a tiny bit of imagination- what Tara Chapman and her colleagues at the Royal Belgian institute of Natural Sciences and the Université Libre de Bruxelles are looking into. They virtually (re)construct skeletons of Neandertals and fuse them to movement of modern human to find out how they could have moved about.
