Did these fossils have a change of heart? This research is presented this week in the journal eLife lead by co-first authors Lara Maldanis and Murilo Carvalho at the Brazilian Biosciences National Laboratory in Campinas, Brazil. Research into the evolution of organ systems that are mainly comprised of soft parts is often stymied by the fact they are not easily preserved in the fossil record—although recent close examination of specimens with advanced imaging and microscopy techniques shows these structures may be preserved more often than previously though. Last year, for example, researchers in China were able to uncover a 540 million year old example of a central nervous system in a fossilized arthropods.

The ancient skeleton known as Kennewick Man is related to modern Native American tribes, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers said last week, opening the process for returning one of the oldest and most complete set of bones ever found in North America to one of those tribes for burial.

The corps, which owns the remains, said the skeleton is now covered by the Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act. The 8,500-year-old remains were discovered in 1996 in southeastern Washington near the Columbia River in Kennewick, triggering a lengthy legal fight between tribes and scientists over whether the bones should be buried immediately or studied.
