What are the criteria for including a topic in MOCA?


A known, apparent or claimed human-specific difference from other Hominids ("Great Apes"), with an emphasis on human uniqueness. Such Topics can range from molecular, to organismal, to societal. The difference in question does not have to be universal to all humans, but it should be nearly universal in human populations. In deciding whether a topic should be included, MOCA Domain Leaders also consider whether the topic might be relevant to understanding the origin of humans.
