    J Hum Evol 44:73-86. 2003
    ..The discovery of this feature in paromomyids after almost 30 years of study of the ear region of this family acts as a cautionary note to the interpretation of the middle ear in damaged specimens...

    Mary T Silcox
    Department of Anthropology, University of Winnipeg, 515 Portage Avenue, Winnipeg, MB R3B 2E9, Canada
    J Hum Evol 58:505-21. 2010
    ..These new data suggest a different model for the ancestors of euprimates than has been assumed based on the anatomy of the brain in visually specialized diurnal tree shrews...

    Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 106:10987-92. 2009
    ..However, the contrasts in features related to the visual system between I. graybullianus and fossil and extant euprimates suggest that improvements to these portions of the brain contributed to increases in brain size within Euprimates...

    Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 104:1159-64. 2007
    ..Our results are consistent with those from recent molecular analyses that group Dermoptera with Scandentia. We find no evidence to support the hypothesis that any plesiadapiforms were mitten-gliders or closely related to Dermoptera...

    J Hum Evol 50:1-35. 2006
    ..Cladistic analysis of cranial data fails to support a close relationship of Carpolestidae to either tarsiiform euprimates or extant Dermoptera, but suggests a close relationship between Carpolestidae, Plesiadapidae, and Euprimates...
