Abstract. Anthropological evidence shows a rather recent emergence of the modern cognitive human within a genetic and anatomic already evolved homo-sapiens. I will describe a proposition for the mind-brain mechanism that could underly that transition, as well as the ongoing work to identify and observe it by testing humans in laboratory conditions.
