We present a new road map for research on “How the Brain Got Language” that adopts an EvoDevoSocio perspective and highlights comparative neuroprimatology – the comparative study of brain, behavior and communication in extant monkeys and great apes – as providing a key grounding for hypotheses on the last common ancestor of humans and monkeys (LCA-m) and chimpanzees (LCA-c) and the processes which guided the evolution LCA-m → LCA-c → protohumans → H. sapiens. Such research constrains and is constrained by analysis of the subsequent, primarily cultural, evolution of H. sapiens which yielded cultures involving the rich use of language.

Additional Information: Funding Information: Support for the Workshop that provided the basis for the present paper was provided by the National Science Foundation (NSF) under Grant No. BCS-1343544 “INSPIRE Track 1: Action, Vision and Language, and their Brain Mechanisms in Evolutionary Relationship” (Michael A. Arbib, Principal Investigator). This Grant has also supported, in part, recent developments of the Mirror System Hypothesis. Michael Arbib thanks each co-author for their lively contributions to the Workshop and all they have contributed to development of the CNP-2018 Road Map. Finally, thanks to student and postdoctoral attendees at the Workshop (whose participation was supported by a grant from UCSD) for their contribution to the discussion. and to the outside reviewers for their careful analysis of the penultimate drafts of the preceding papers.
