This week on ResearchBlogging.org:

  • Julien Riel-Salvatore of A Very Remote Period Indeed discusses how biogeography may be leveraged to help us better understand how and where hominins may have lived in past. However, Julien cautions that we need to consider the data at hand when drawing conclusions – specifically, with regard to dated sites, and emphasizes the importance of social and cultural data when trying to place humans.
  • At Neuroskeptic, the neuroscientist investigates whether AI can experience schizophrenia, concluding that there may be benefits to experiment design with this sort of research.
  • At Per Square Mile, Tim De Chant reveals faunal resettlement patterns in the wake of habitat development – there are a number of qualitative factors that are considered.
  • How do you keep rotten folks in line? At Evolving Economics, Jason Collins shows how benefits can help encourage altruism.

Tune in next week for more research from the social sciences.
