Cognitive and Evolutionary

Since the inception of modern anthropology, considerations of how human biology and natural ecology impact on human thought, behaviour, social structures and cultural expression have always occupied a central position in the discipline. However, the past decade has witnessed advances in the evolutionary sciences (notably behavioural ecology) and the cognitive sciences (including neuroimaging and evolutionary psychology) that offer new opportunities to bridge the gap between social, cognitive and biological anthropology, placing them closer together than at any time in their respective histories.

The Institute of Cognitive and Evolutionary Anthropology at Oxford brings together evolutionary anthropology and evolutionary psychology with the aim of developing exciting new dimensions for anthropology.
