A Bite Through Time: Family Program with Tanya Smith
January 17, 2010
Our teeth are much more useful than just for eating and smiling. Tanya Smith, Assistant Professor of Human Evolutionary Biology at Harvard, who studies the teeth of humans, Neanderthals, fossil apes, and other primates, will explore what teeth can tell us about human origins and growth, and how they are actually “tiny time recorders” in our mouth.
