We have more Neanderthal ancestry than we thought
“In 2017 we found a second complete Neanderthal genome, revealing that some of human “parent’s” genes were Neanderthal all along. Ultimately, this wound up showing that non-African Neanderthal ancestry was ~20% higher than we thought. …
Researchers have been underestimating the amount of Neanderthal DNA in non-African populations. New work helps fix this problem, confirming we have ~20% more Neanderthal DNA than expected… small amount overall (<5%).”

Neanderthal Genes Influenced Modern Human Brain Development
“The strongest evidence they [Max Plank Inst.] found for effects on gene activity were in the basal ganglia and cerebellum, which receive direct input from the motor cortex and regulate movement.”
This is a critical region of the brain, responsible for cognitive functions.
“The basal ganglia are associated with a variety of functions, includingcontrol of voluntary motor movements, procedural learning, habit learning, eye movements, cognition, and emotion.” — Google definitions
Whites are the only modern human sub-species with exclusively Neanderthal DNA. Asians have admixture with Denisovan and Homo erectus. Africans have zero Neanderthal or Denisovan.
