and Young human-specific genes correlated with human brain evolution

If the changes in the skull and in intelligence are driven by genetically predisposed changes in the size of the olfactory bulbs, they present an even bigger challenge to evolutionary psychologists and others who typically seem to think we are primarily visual creatures. Changes driven by the evolution of our olfactory acuity and specificity also rule out domain-specific modules, which is another evolutionary theory that never made scientific sense to me.
