Neanderthals died out because did not like to communicate
The researchers analyzed the DNA of Neanderthals who lived in Europe and Asia. The results showed that the ancestors prefer a sedentary lifestyle.
Scientists have suggested that ancient people, mostly, were at the same place and very rarely met with the family.
Small populations, which are located in different places only sometimes had a chance to survive.
Historians think that 650 thousand years ago the ancestors split into two branches: Neanderthals and modern humans. Both settled in the Asian and European parts of the world and on the African continent. Thus, the genome of a modern human found 2-3% of the genes of the ancient Neanderthals.
Experts interested in the fact how the overlap with Neanderthals in different settlements. And in the end it turned out that they were rare. In theory, if the Neanderthals were associated not with close relatives, and with people from other populations, it is likely that they would age on earth was longer.
This discovery gave a negative result on an early version of scientists. The latter argued that in those times there were multiple displacements of populations, about the contacts between them and build other theories on the contacts that could happen.

Earlier, scientists have theorized about the disappearance of the Neanderthals. Romanian researchers reported that they were in Eurasia around 350 thousand years, but went extinct about 40 thousand years ago during the last ice age. Have already appeared the ancestors of modern humans.
The reason for the disappearance of Neanderthals called cold and dry climate, which has led to problems of obtaining food.
“Our study shows that climate change may have played an important role in the disappearance of the Neanderthals,” said study co-author and senior lecturer at Northumbria University, Dr. Vasil the Program.
When Europe warmed up, the Neanderthals were already on the verge of extinction. Their small population could not compete with modern humans.
Note that the Neanderthals disappeared as a species nearly 40 thousand years ago.
