So suggests new research that tracked changes in two genes thought to help regulate brain growth, changes that appeared well after the rise of modern humans 200,000 years ago.That the defining feature of humans — our large brains — continued to evolve as recently as 5,800 years ago, and may be doing so today, promises to surprise the average person, if not biologists."We, including scientists, have considered ourselves as sort of the pinnacle of evolution," noted lead researcher Bruce Lahn, a University of Chicago geneticist whose studies appear in Friday's edition of the journal Science.
Spieth’s girlfriend is Annie Verret, a former Texas Tech student who was on the Dean’s List and is an avid golfer. Verret is often spotted at Spieth’s tournaments with his family.
However, the couple does a very effective job of keeping their relationship under wraps, especially last year when Spieth won two majors and finished in the top-five at the other two.

The discovery of the burials could help to shed light on the history of human occupation of the area over the course of millennia, as well as the conditions they faced.
Ancient stone tombs, some dating back further than 4,000 years, have been uncovered by archaeologists working in Jordan's Black Desert.
"A different way to look at is it's almost impossible for evolution not to happen." Still, the findings also are controversial, because it's far from clear what effect the genetic changes had or if they arose when Lahn's "molecular clock" suggests — at roughly the same time period as some cultural achievements, including written language and the development of cities.
Lahn and colleagues examined two genes, named microcephalin and ASPM, that are connected to brain size.
Verret will likely be waiting for Spieth on the 18th green as he tries to win another green jacket on Sunday.

In fact, the variations were so common they couldn't be accidental mutations but instead were probably due to natural selection, where genetic changes that are favorable to a species quickly gain a foothold and begin to spread, the researchers report.
