Recently, researchers propose various domain-conditioned attention modules and make promising progresses.  ...  All these numerical results can help and encourage researchers to cast a new light on designing novel attention modules towards better domain adaptation.  ...

Evolutionary Psychology: New Perspectives on Cognition and Motivation

Leda Cosmides, John Tooby
2013 Annual Review of Psychology  
The first wave focused on computational processes that generate knowledge about the world: perception, attention, categorization, reasoning, learning, and memory.  ...  The second wave views the brain as composed of evolved computational systems, engineered by natural selection to use information to adaptively regulate physiology and behavior.  ...  Because faces are important now, as well as ancestrally, a skeptic could argue that preferential attention to faces is caused by a domain-general expertise system-an evolved system to be sure, but one  ...

The Evolution of Domain-General Mechanisms in Intelligence and Learning

Dan Chiappe, Kevin MacDonald
2005 The Journal of general psychology  
Although there is a variety of evolved, special purpose learning devices, learning is also characterized by domain-general mechanisms that are able to achieve evolutionary goals by making novel and serendipitous  ...  Domain-general mechanisms interact in complex ways with domain-specific, information-encapsulated modules, most importantly by manipulating information obtained from various modules in attempting to solve  ...  Without framing mechanisms guiding it toward the solution of adaptive problems, a problem solver would "go on forever making up solutions that have nothing to do with a nonassigned problem" (Gelman &  ...

Towards An Evolutionary Psychological Categorization of Individual Differences

Jan Guus Waldorp
2017 Psychology and Behavioral Science International Journal  
Based on our research of evolutionary psychological literature we propose that, in order to successfully attain inclusive fitness, the individual must be successful in at least one of the fundamental evolved  ...  adaptations.  ...  We postulate that the mind of the individual is calibrated by events from the prenatal period onwards towards a favorable competitive strategy that 'prioritizes' one of the three evolved adaptations over  ...

Evolutionary psychology: Controversies, questions, prospects, and limitations

Jaime C. Confer, Judith A. Easton, Diana S. Fleischman, Cari D. Goetz, David M. G. Lewis, Carin Perilloux, David M. Buss
2010 American Psychologist  
These include issues of testability and falsifiability; the domain specificity versus domain generality of psychological mechanisms; the role of novel environments as they interact with evolved psychological  ...  Just as transmitted culture rests on a foundation of evolved psychological adaptations, novel adaptations can evolve as a consequence of transmitted culture.  ...  Wouldn't one domain-general rationality mechanism be more parsimonious than postulating many domain-specific mechanisms?  ...

Distinguishing Byproducts from Non-Adaptive Effects of Algorithmic Adaptations

Justin H. Park
2007 Evolutionary Psychology  
I call attention to Sperber's (1994) distinction between proper domains and actual domains of algorithmic mechanisms.  ...  Extending Sperber's distinction, I propose the terms adaptive effects and non-adaptive effects, which more accurately capture the phenomena of interest to psychologists and prevent fruitless adaptation-versus-byproduct  ...  Thus, one can claim to have identified a byproduct of this adaptation only when one has identified some evolved feature that is inextricably linked to this algorithmic mechanism.  ...

Embodiment, evolution, and social cognition: An integrative framework

Michael P. Kaschak, Jon K. Maner
2009 European Journal of Social Psychology  
We begin with the claim that cognition evolved to facilitate the ability to plan and execute action in the world.  ...  This evolution was shaped by the adaptive challenges faced by humans throughout their evolutionary history (e.g., self protection, mate selection, navigating status hierarchies, building social coalitions  ...  Should one perceive anger in a face, the direction of that person's gaze (along with one's recent history with that individual) likely suggests whether that anger is directed toward you or toward someone  ...

The Evolution of Complementary Cognition: Humans Cooperatively Adapt and Evolve through a System of Collective Cognitive Search

Helen Taylor, Brice Fernandes, Sarah Wraight
2021 Cambridge Archaeological Journal  
We propose that, just as genetic search drives phenotypic adaptation and evolution, complementary cognitive search is central to understanding how our species adapts and evolves through culture.  ...  We build on evidence for individual neurocognitive specialization regarding search abilities in the modern population, and propose that our species cooperatively searches and adapts through a system of  ...  Concurrently, adaptation to a variable environment relies on allocating resources towards exploration.  ...

Research Goals for Evolving the 'Form' User Interface Metaphor towards More Interactivity [chapter]

Johannes Harms
2013 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
This work proposes to evolve the 'form' UI metaphor towards more interactivity. Related work has proposed interactive form elements such as autocompleting or otherwise assistive input fields.  ...  But a unified concept and scientific reflection on the topic are missing. Methodologically, this work first provides a deeper understanding of forms as UI metaphor.  ...  E.g., attention-reactive UIs can dynamically adapt to the user's focus of attention [14] , but forms are usually very static.  ...

Human threat management systems: Self-protection and disease avoidance

Steven L. Neuberg, Douglas T. Kenrick, Mark Schaller
2011 Neuroscience and Biobehavioral Reviews  
Each system is biased in a risk-averse manner, erring toward precautionary responses even when available cues only heuristically imply threat.  ...  Humans likely evolved precautionary systems designed to minimize the threats to reproductive fitness posed by highly interdependent ultrasociality.  ...  One implication of this sex difference is an adaptive (if imperfect) bias toward detecting anger more readily in the faces of men (compared to faces of women).  ...
