    A gene can't be expressed (inactivated) or expressed with varying intensity, in other words they are more or less active, producing more or less protein, as the intensity of a light bulb can be adjusted, causing it to produce a dim or intense light. That's what happened during the evolution of the human brain with the expression of genes related to neuroplasticity, i.e., the ability to form new neural connections (synapses).

    The Catalan Institute of Human Palaeoecology and Social Evolution (IPHES) has identified in Tunisia a cranium of the earliest aurochs in the world. The animal is the ancestor of today's bulls, its body mass was above 1.000 kg weighing more than 1,000 kg and each of the horns is longer than a meter. This reinforces the idea that the origin of the Bos is in Africa, not in Eurasia (as it was supposed until recently). The finding is just published in the prestigious journal Quaternary Science Reviews.
