Complex brain evolved much earlier than previously thought

Complex brain evolved much earlier than previously thought

A recent publication in Nature settled a long-standing scientific argument about the evolution of insects. These findings also gave an insight look in the formation of complex brain structure over 520 million years ago. All these started when scientists found a 520-million-year-old external skeleton of Fuxianhuia protensa, an extinct type of  A fossil arthropo
