This is a brilliant talk and a synopsis and synthesis of decades of your own research and that of your department in the field of Eustachian tube anatomy/physiology and otitis media. Kudos.
My question is the following. Within the various races of the Homo sapiens species, has there been research conducted to study changes if any on the TVP and LVP muscles insertion sites along the skull base over the millennia brought on by nature or nurture? If there hasn't been any studies done in this area, could you conjecture if Homo sapiens 4 to 5 thousands years ago might have significantly different insertion vectors as compare to modern humans within the same race?
Thank you so much to be the lead-off presenter in this year's ASPO Fellow's Webinar series.
