Orrorin Tugenensis (neuronal branch)
Overview[edit | edit source]
The Orrorin Tugenensis neuronal branch deals with dopamine levels, life expectancy, neuronal energy, and reducing the effects of fear. Neurons in this branch are the first overall upgrade to your hominid.
Mechanics[edit | edit source]
The Orrorin Tugenensis branch has eight total neurons: eight regular neurons and zero genetic mutations.
