La colección del ratón pérez: Un proyecto de ciencia ciudadana

Mar 1, 2022

Ante la necesidad de conocer mejor la dentición temporal y dado que la mayoría de las veces estas piezas dentales se acaban desechando, el Grupo de Antropología Dental (GAD) y la Unidad de Cultura Científica e Innovación (UCC+i) del Centro Nacional de Investigación sobre la Evolución Humana (CENIEH) en Burgos, organizan la primera campaña de recogida de dientes en 2014. Con esta idea en mente, nace la colección del Ratón Pérez

Similarities and differences in dental tissue proportions of deciduous and permanent canines of early and middle Pleistocene human populations.

Two- and three-dimensional evaluation of dental tissues has become routine in human taxonomic studies over the years. However, most of our knowledge of the variability of enamel and dentin dimensions of the human evolutionary lineage comes from the study of the permanent dentition, and in particular the molars. This leads to a biased view of the variability of these traits. Because of their early formation and rapid development, deciduous teeth allow for more simplified inferences regarding the...

Modern deciduous human teeh: the Ratón Pérez collection

Oct 1, 2021

Personal identification of an unknown deceased individual is crucial in our society for both legal and humanitarian reasons. Therefore, human skeletal collections are an important source of information for physical anthropologists to establish and develop rigorous methods to obtain reliable data on the individual under study. A few dental and osteological reference samples exist (Dayal et al., 2009; Voisin et al., 2012), but due to the current low early mortality rate, none of them contain large...
