  • Beneath the beard : do facial morphometrics influence the strength of judgments of men's beardedness? 

    Dixson, Barnaby J. W.; Lee, Anthony J.; Sherlock, James M.; Talamas, Sean N. (2017-03) - Journal article
    Converging evidence suggests men's beards, like many androgen-dependent masculine secondary sexual traits, communicate masculinity and dominance intra-sexually while effects of men's beardedness on attractiveness ratings ...
  • Complex patterns of signalling to convey different social goals of sex in bonobos, Pan paniscus 

    Genty, Emilie; Neumann, Christof; Zuberbuehler, Klaus (2015-11-05) - Journal article
    Sexual behaviour in bonobos (Pan paniscus) functions beyond mere reproduction to mediate social interactions and relationships. In this study, we assessed the signalling behaviour in relation to four social goals of sex ...
  • The effects of facial adiposity on attractiveness and perceived leadership ability 

    Re, Daniel Edward; Perrett, David Ian (2014) - Journal article
    Facial attractiveness has a positive influence on electoral success both in experimental paradigms and in the real world. One parameter that influences facial attractiveness and social judgements is facial adiposity (a ...
  • Facial cues to perceived height influence leadership choices in simulated war and peace contexts. 

    Re, Daniel E.; DeBruine, Lisa M.; Jones, Benedict C.; Perrett, David I. (2013) - Journal article
    Body size and other signs of physical prowess are associated with leadership hierarchies in many social species. Here we (1) assess whether facial cues associated with perceived height and masculinity have different effects ...
  • Influence of perceived height, masculinity, and age on each other and on perceptions of dominance in male faces 

    Batres, Carlota; Re, Daniel E.; Perrett, David Ian (2015-11) - Journal article
    Several studies have examined the individual effects of facial cues to height, masculinity, and age on interpersonal interactions and partner preferences. We know much less about the influence of these traits on each other. ...
  • The neuropsychology of first impressions: evidence from Huntington’s disease 

    Sprengelmeyer, Reiner H.; Young, Andrew W.; Baldas, Eva-Maria; Ratheiser, Iris; Sutherland, Clare A. M.; Müller, Hans-Peter; Grön, Georg; Süssmuth, Sigurd D.; Landwehrmeyer, G. Bernhard; Orth, Michael (2016-12) - Journal article
    Impairments of emotion recognition have been widely documented in Huntington's disease (HD), but little is known concerning how these relate to other aspects of social cognition, including first impressions of traits such ...
  • Perching but not foraging networks predict the spread of novel foraging skills in starlings 

    Boogert, Neeltje Janna; Nightingale, Glenna Faith; Hoppitt, William John Edward; Laland, Kevin Neville (2014-11) - Journal article
    The directed social learning hypothesis suggests that information does not spread evenly through animal groups, but rather individual characteristics and patterns of physical proximity guide the social transmission of ...
  • A rare exception to Haldane's rule: are X chromosomes key to hybrid incompatibilities? 

    Moran, Peter; Ritchie, Michael Gordon; Bailey, Nathan William (2017) - Journal article
    The prevalence of Haldane’s rule suggests that sex chromosomes commonly have a key role in reproductive barriers and speciation. However, the majority of research on Haldane’s rule has been conducted in species with ...
  • Redness enhances perceived aggression, dominance and attractiveness in men's faces 

    Stephen, Ian D.; Oldham, Francesca H.; Perrett, David I.; Barton, Robert A. (2012) - Journal article
    In a range of non-human primate, bird and fish species, the intensity of red coloration in males is associated with social dominance, testosterone levels and mate selection. In humans too, skin redness is associated with ...
  • Sexual selection and trust games 

    Stirrat, Michael (University of St Andrews, 2010-06-23) - Thesis
    In economic games the facial attributes of counterparts bias decisions to trust and decisions to enter play. We report research supporting hypotheses that trust and reciprocation decisions in trust games are biased by ...
  • Sexual selection on male vocal fundamental frequency in humans and other anthropoids 

    Puts, David A.; Hill, Alexander K.; Bailey, Drew H.; Walker, Robert S.; Rendall, Drew; Wheatley, John R.; Welling, Lisa L.M.; Dawood, Khytam; Cárdenas, Rodrigo; Burriss, Robert P.; Jablonski, Nina G.; Shriver, Mark D.; Weiss, Daniel; Lameira, Adriano R.; Apicella, Coren L.; Owren, Michael J.; Barelli, Claudia; Glenn, Mary E.; Ramos-Fernandez, Gabriel (2016-04-27) - Journal article
    In many primates, including humans, the vocalizations of males and females differ dramatically, with male vocalizations and vocal anatomy often seeming to exaggerate apparent body size. These traits may be favoured by ...
  • Socially transmitted diffusion of a novel behavior from subordinate chimpanzees 

    Watson, Stuart K.; Reamer, Lisa A.; Mareno, Mary Catherine; Vale, Gillian; Harrison, Rachel A.; Lambeth, Susan P.; Schapiro, Steven J.; Whiten, Andrew (2017-06) - Journal article
    Chimpanzees (Pan troglodytes) demonstrate much cultural diversity in the wild, yet a majority of novel behaviors do not become group-wide traditions. Since many such novel behaviors are introduced by low-ranking individuals, ...
  • Variability in individual rates of aggression in wild gray seals : fine-scale analysis reveals importance of social and spatial stability 

    Bishop, A.M.; Pomeroy, P.; Twiss, S.D. (2015-10) - Journal article
    Aggressive interactions are costly for individuals in time, energy, or physical damage, and in polygynous mating systems, there is high variability in the rates and intensity of aggression across individuals and within ...
