Evolutionary Psychology Lab @VU
Our interest is in studying human social and organizational behaviour from an evolutionary theoretical framework to develop ideas and research questions. Members of the research group at the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam study a variety of topics including leadership and followership, power and conflict, emotions, altruism and cooperation, costly signalling, intergroup relations and sex differences. We use a combination of laboratory experiments, neuroscience studies, surveys and field research (visit the VU website for more information on the EPLab@VU).
