Brain Sciences

TriCEM supports evolutionary perspectives on brain science and health, including psychiatric disease and degenerative diseases of the brain and cognition.  We are also interested in supporting research on evolutionary perspectives on human behavior and decision making.

We have supported a working group and several presentations aimed at building interest in this area.


Working Groups:

Exploring the role of dietary xanthophylls in vision and cognition: an evolutionary perspective (2019)



Lecture Series with Duke Institute for Brain Sciences (2015-2016)

Why Didn’t Natural Selection Make Brains Better? Foundations for Evolutionary Neuroscience (March 2015)

The Evolution of Human Longevity and Grandmother Cognitive Health (October 2015)
