    • The evolutionary psychology of hunger 

      Al-Shawaf, L. (Elsevier BV, 2016)
      An evolutionary psychological perspective suggests that emotions can be understood as coordinating mechanisms whose job is to regulate various psychological and physiological programs in the service of solving an adaptive ...

      Lewis, D. M. S.; Al-Shawaf, L.; Conroy-Beam, D.; Asao, K.; Buss, D. M. (American Psychological Association Inc., 2017)
      Researchers in the social and behavioral sciences are increasingly using evolutionary insights to test novel hypotheses about human psychology. Because evolutionary perspectives are relatively new to psychology and most ...
    • Evolved individual differences: advancing a condition-dependent model of personality 

      Lewis, D. M. G. (Elsevier, 2015-10)
      The field of personality psychology offers a wealth of robust empirical research and a successful descriptive taxonomy, but neither explains the origins of the structure of human personality nor elaborates a generative ...

      Lewis, David M. G.; Al-Shawaf, L.; Russell, E. M.; Buss, D. M. (Springer Netherlands, 2015)
      An evolutionary perspective yields fresh insights into the nature of human friendships and the emotions associated with these relationships. This approach sheds light on how specific types of friendship would have benefitted ...
    • The grammar of anger: Mapping the computational architecture of a recalibrational emotion

      According to the recalibrational theory of anger, anger is a computationally complex cognitive system that evolved to bargain for better treatment. Anger coordinates facial expressions, vocal changes, verbal arguments, the ...
    • Integrating molecular genetics and evolutionary psychology: Sexual jealousy and the androgen receptor (AR) gene 

      Lewis, D. M. G.; Al-Shawaf, L.; Janiak, M. C.; Akunebu, S. P. (Elsevier, 2018)
      Integrating evolutionary psychological and molecular genetic research may increase our knowledge of the psychological correlates of specific genes, as well as enhance evolutionary psychology's ability to explain individual ...
    • Lumbar curvature: a previously undiscovered standard of attractiveness 

      Lewis, D. M. G.; Russell, E. M.; Al-Shawaf, L.; Buss, D. M. (Elsevier, 2015)
      This paper reports independent studies supporting the proposal that human standards of attractiveness reflect the output of psychological adaptations to detect fitness-relevant traits. We tested novel a priori hypotheses ...
    • Mating strategy, disgust, and food neophobia 

      Al-Shawaf, L.; Lewis, D. M. G.; Alley, T. R.; Buss, D. M. (Elsevier, 2015)
      Food neophobia and disgust are commonly thought to be linked, but this hypothesis is typically implicitly assumed rather than directly tested. Evidence for the connection has been based on conceptually and empirically ...
    • The openness-calibration hypothesis 

      Lewis, D. M. G.; Al-Shawaf, L.; Yilmaz, C. (Elsevier Ltd, 2015)
      The current study tested the hypotheses that (1) psychological adaptations calibrate Openness to Experience to facilitate or deter pursuit of short-term mating, and (2) this calibration varies as a function of mating ...
    • Parasite stress and pathogen avoidance relate to distinct dimensions of political ideology across 30 nations 

      Tybur J.M.; Inbar Y.; Aarøe L.; Barclay P.; Barlowe F.K.; De Barra M.; Beckerh D.V.; Borovoi L.; Choi I.; Choik J.A.; Consedine N.S.; Conway A.; Conway J.R.; Conway P.; Adoric V.C.; Demirci D.E.; Fernández A.M.; Ferreirat D.C.S.; Ishii K.; Jakšic I.; Ji T.; Van Leeuwen F.; Lewis D.M.G.; Li N.P.; McIntyre J.C.; Mukherjee S.; Park J.H.; Pawlowski B.; Petersen M.B.; Pizarro D.; Prodromitis G.; Prokop P.; Rantala M.J.; Reynolds L.M.; Sandin B.; Sevi B.; De Smet D.; Srinivasan N.; Tewari S.; Wilson C.; Yong J.C.; Žezelj I. (National Academy of Sciences, 2016)
      People who are more avoidant of pathogens are more politically conservative, as are nations with greater parasite stress. In the current research, we test two prominent hypotheses that have been proposed as explanations ...
