About this Research Topic
We are excited to announce the opportunity to publish work presented at the NorthEastern Evolutionary Psychology Society (NEEPS) 2011 conference proceedings in a first ever Research Topic of Frontiers in Evolutionary Neuroscience. The emergence of interdisciplinary research using both human and animal research, combining methods from fields including psychology, biology, and neuroscience was exciting to see at this years conference. Chief Editor, Steven Platek, and Research Topic Guest Associate Editor, Melanie Shoup-Knox, would like to encourage these unique contributions while collaborating with Dan O'Brien, Research Topic Editor of the Journal of Social, Evolutionary, and Cultural Psychology, to expose the Society and the high quality research that it has been generating to a new and broad audience.
Submission to this Research Topic are not limited to those papers presented at NEEPS. We are also soliciting papers from the scientific community that bridge the gap between questions of ultimate causation (evolutionary psychology/behavioral science) and proximate neural underpinnings.
Important Note: All contributions to this Research Topic must be within the scope of the section and journal to which they are submitted, as defined in their mission statements. Frontiers reserves the right to guide an out-of-scope manuscript to a more suitable section or journal at any stage of peer review.
