This international scientific journal publishes theoretical and empirical studies which explore and examine all aspects of adaptive human behavior. A sampling of the topics covered includes cooperation, affiliation and bonding, competition and aggression, sex and relationships, parenting and decision-making, and many more. The editors place an emphasis on studies that also address the biological mechanisms that control behavior, including neural, endocrine, immune, cardiovascular and genetic processes and others. The coverage encompasses a broad range of disciplines.
