Examination #3 BIO358 –FALL 2005 INSTRUCTIONS: VERY IMPORTANT: When you are ready to turn in your exam, stand or raise your hand and wait for Prof. Bingham or Instructor Souza to come to the end of your row to take the exam. You MUST show a photo-ID at that time, or your exam will not be taken. Read all questions carefully . There are multiple forms of this exam. BE SURE to use the scantron (op-scan) sheet in the exam form you are given – NOT a different one. Answer questions (all multiple choice - #s1-25, each worth 4 points) on the enclosed scantron sheet. As illustrated below, BE CAREFUL to write your name and Stony Brook ID# on the scantron sheet and to encode these by coloring in (“bubbling in”) the appropriate circles in #2 pencil. Do NOT bubble in your birth date. These things must be done if your scantron sheet is to be graded. BE CAREFUL to use #2 pencil on the scantron sheet, throughout. You may wish to mark your answers on your exam sheets and take these sheets with you. Turn in ONLY your scantron sheet. Answer keys will be posted on the Blackboard site (under Course Documents > Exams > Exam 3) by Friday AM. The exam is designed to be challenging and perfect scores will be rare. The examination will be graded on the basis of the statistical profile of the class. All examinations will be collected by 10:30 PM, NO EXCEPTIONS. Official exam grades will be posted on the Blackboard site (under your name in Grade Book) as soon as they are returned to us by the computer center. Please check to confirm that your recorded grade is correct. 1

Cognitive virtuosity is one of the most conspicuously unique features we possess. We can study and understand the world in ways that non-human animals cannot hope to match. [For example, we invent the calculus and walk on the moon, while non-human animals can’t count their fingers and toes reliably.] Considering all the details of the fossil and archaeological records of our ca. 2 million year history, our cognitive virtuosity teaches us some profound lessons on the theory we have been exploring. Which of the following is the most complete and true statement of some of these lessons? a. Human cognitive virtuosity resulted predominantly from the genetic changes that allowed the expansion of our brain sizes. b. Human cognitive virtuosity results predominantly from the culturally transmitted information
