'Roth M, 1987: Hominization of the Skeleton: A Neurocranial, Neurospinal and Osteoneural Developmental Process. Anthropologie (Brno) 25, 3: 219-228'.
The notion is advocated and supported by gross morphological argumentation that the neuro-cranial developmental relation, viz., the dependence of the shape of the neurocranial bony envelope upon the size and shape of the growing brain does not represent but the most striking local manifestation of the universal osteoneural relation between the developing bony and nervous tissue in general, i.e. in the axial organ, in the limbs as well as in the facial area. The gross anatomical features of the skeleton, above all those associated with hominization appear to have been evolved as adaptations to the growth peculiarities of the respective nervous structures.
