Dr. Lawrence M. Witmer, a professor of anatomy at Ohio University in Athens, will discuss the latest research that uses the most recent advances in high-tech imaging and 3-D computer modeling to peer inside the heads of dinosaurs. He will show how a careful comparison with a wide range of modern animals allows new insights into the sensory capabilities, brains and behaviors of dinosaurs.
