Natural selection has not only formed our anatomy, but it has also molded our social behavior. CHES faculty and students are engaged in research that seeks to understand the adaptive meaning of some of the most common but perplexing aspects of human behavioral biology, including mate choice, altruism, self-deception, romantic attraction, and military organization. The interdisciplinary research combines observations of social interactions with studies of genetics, anatomy and the physiology of the human body and brain.
