    Primate Research Institute, Kyoto University, Inuyama, Aichi 484 8506, Japan
    Am J Phys Anthropol 126:193-204. 2005
    ..These results support the hypothesis that the descent of the larynx evolved in at least two steps during hominoid evolution...
  2. ncbi request reprint Comparative morphology of the hyo-laryngeal complex in anthropoids: two steps in the evolution of the descent of the larynx
    Takeshi Nishimura
    Primate Research Institute, Kyoto University, 41 Kanrin, Inuyama, Aichi 484 8506, Japan
    Primates 44:41-9. 2003
    ..The second step, descent of the hyoid within the neck, occurred during hominid evolution for human speech...

    Takeshi D Nishimura
    Laboratory of Physical Anthropology, Department of Zoology, Graduate School of Science, Kyoto University, Kyoto 606 8502, Japan
    J Hum Evol 52:637-46. 2007
    ..sushkini probably belongs to the macaque lineage rather than that of baboons, although structural influences of the maxillary fossa leading to formation of the maxillary sinus have yet to be evaluated in extant macaques and baboons...

    Takeshi Nishimura
    Laboratory of Physical Anthropology, Department of Zoology, Graduate School of Science, Kyoto University, Sakyo, Kyoto 606 8502, Japan
    J Hum Evol 51:244-54. 2006
    ..Thus, the descent of the larynx per se is not unique to humans, and facial flattening was probably the major factor that paved the way for speech in the human lineage...

    Takeshi D Nishimura
    Laboratory of Physical Anthropology, Department of Zoology, Graduate School of Science, Kyoto University, Kitashirakawa Oiwake cho, Sakyo, Kyoto 606 8502, Japan
    J Hum Evol 49:370-89. 2005
    ..Finally, we argue that the sinus that pneumatizes the entire maxilla is a primitive feature in extant platyrrhines and was probably shared by the last common ancestor of the anthropoids...

    Takeshi D Nishimura
    Primate Research Institute, Kyoto University, Inuyama, Aichi, Japan
    J Hum Evol 62:548-61. 2012
    ..Nevertheless, such phylogenetic interpretations are largely dependent on the restricted fossil evidence from the Pliocene and Pleistocene of eastern Eurasia and will be reexamined when new findings are made...

    Folia Primatol (Basel) 81:53-62. 2010
    ..Eastern Para. gansuensis might have dispersed eastward retaining a primitive condition, while central Para. sushkini would have acquired this feature independently in central Eurasia...

    Primate Research Institute, Kyoto University, Inuyama, Aichi 484 8506, Japan
    Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 100:6930-3. 2003
    ..Thus, the descent of the larynx and the morphological foundations for speech production must have evolved in part during hominoid evolution, and not in a single shift during hominid evolution...

    Takeshi Nishimura
    Primate Research Institute, Kyoto University, 41 Kanrin, Inuyama, Aichi 484 8506, Japan
    Primates 44:199-201. 2003

    Primate Research Institute, Kyoto University, Inuyama, Japan
    Front Oral Biol 13:55-9. 2009
