Evolutionary Cognition Group

Group ECG April 2022


Our aim is to better understand the evolutionary origin of the human mind and behaviour. At the intersection of Biology and Psychology, we ask: How do nonhuman and human primates differ with regard to social, motivational and cognitive processes? And how can we explain such differences from an evolutionary perspective?

We are particularly interested in the marmoset monkeys that we study in the wild and in captivity because like in humans, the entire group helps raising their offspring. They thus help us to test the cooperative breeding model of human evolution.
