in the third group subjects actively showed each other what they were doing but without gesturing; in the fourth group gesturing and pointing were allowed but no talking; and in the fifth group the “teacher” was permitted to talk to the “learner” and say whatever was necessary In each group the learner became the teacher in the next round In this fashion the research team created five different “chains of transmission” of Oldowan toolmakers which produced a total of more than 6000 flakes The results of the experiment reported online today in Nature Communications were striking As might be expected subjects sitting alone and attempting to “reverse engineer” Oldowan flakes simply by looking at cores hammers and examples of the flakes had only limited success But performance improved very little among students who just watched others make the tools Only the groups in which gestural or verbal teaching was allowed performed significantly above the reverse engineering baseline on several indicators of toolmaking skill such as the total number of flakes produced that were long enough and sharp enough to be viable and the proportion of hits that resulted in a viable flake For example gestural teaching doubled and verbal teaching quadrupled the likelihood that a single strike would result in a viable flake the team found The researchers conclude that the successful spread of even the earliest known toolmaking technology more than 2 million years ago would have required the capacity for teaching and probably also the beginnings of spoken language—what the researchers call protolanguage (Many researchers think that gestural communication was the prelude to spoken language which might explain its effectiveness in these experiments) “The ability to rapidly share the skill to make Oldowan tools would have brought fitness benefits” to early humans Morgan says such as greater efficiency in butchering animals; and then Darwinian natural selection would have acted to gradually improve primitive language abilities eventually leading from protolanguage to the full-blown semantically complex languages we speak today “This is an exciting paper” says Thomas Suddendorf a psychologist at the University of Queensland St Lucia in Australia because it “nicely demonstrates the transmission power of teaching and symbols … in a context that was critical in human evolution” And Dietrich Stout an archaeologist at Emory University in Atlanta comments that “a major strength of the paper is that it adopts an experimental approach to questions that have otherwise largely been addressed through intuition or common sense” Although Suddendorf finds the team’s interpretations “sensible” and “plausible” he cautions that the experimental results cannot be considered direct proof for the theory behind them For one thing Suddendorf says the subjects “already have language and have grown up with language” and so it would be expected that they would learn more effectively when they could talk to each other which may not have been true for our earliest ancestors Ceri Shipton an archaeologist at the University of Cambridge in the United Kingdom agrees “This article perhaps overreaches in its interpretations” he says because the subjects have grown up with language but “they have not grown up with stone tools” as early humans did Another weakness of the study Stout adds is that the subjects were given only 5 minutes to learn the toolmaking techniques and then no more than 25 minutes to produce Oldowan flakes Had they been given more time Stout suggests the additional practice might have erased “any detectable difference in the transmission conditions”Written by Jagmeeta Thind | Published: April 25 2015 12:00 am (left) Wendell Rodricks;
