PSYC 306 - EVOLUTION OF BEHAVIOR

Have the human mind and human behavior been shaped by natural selection through evolutionary history as the human body? If so, what aspects of behavior are most likely to be responsive to selection? Are antecedents of certain human behaviors found in other species? For example, do other species have their "cultures"? What are "memes" and in what way are they analogous to genes? These and other will be explored in this course.
