The Evolution Institute has held a series of workshops over the past several years that brought together researchers from multiple disciplines to examine human learning from a developmental and evolutionary perspective. From these workshops, we have had publications in leading journals as well as a book that is part of the Springer Press Evolutionary Psychology series.
