Holloway’s current research is basically three-fold: (1) to study the brain endocasts of fossil hominids to better understand how the human brain evolved; (2) to continue studies on ape brain endocast morphology and variation as a comparative basis for (1); (3) to study modern human brain variation with regard to brain weight, brain organization, and sexual dimorphism.
