The British daily broadsheet The Guardian today (March 4th 2005) carries a
story reporting on brain imaging by Professor Dean Falk of Florida State
University of the Homo floresiensis remains discovered in Flores,
Indonesia. The remains have been stated as being those of a newly
discovered species of human. According to the story, the brain differed
from that of Homo erectus and Homo sapiens with enlarged temporal lobes.
