    Peter M Todd

    Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 104:15011-6. 2007
    ..Unlike the cognitive processes that Buston and Emlen inferred from self-reports, this pattern of results from actual mate choices is very much in line with the evolutionary predictions of parental investment theory...

    Skyler S Place

    Psychol Sci 20:22-6. 2009
    ..Variability between observers was also found. The results suggest that the ability to read nonverbal behavior quickly in mate choice is present not only for individuals in the interaction, but also for third-party observers...

    Jutta Mata
    Center for Adaptive Behavior and Cognition, Max Planck Institute for Human Development, Lentzeallee 94, 14195 Berlin, Germany
    Appetite 54:37-43. 2010
    ..Higher self-efficacy generally helped in maintaining a program. The results emphasize the importance of considering rule complexity to promote long-term weight management...

    Peter M Todd
    Center for Adaptive Behavior and Cognition, Max Planck Institute for Human Development, Lentzealle 94, 14195 Berlin, Germany
    Demography 42:559-74. 2005
    ..Substantial individual variation must be included in the models to account for the demographically observed age-at-marriage patterns...
  5. ncbi request reprint Fast and frugal food choices: uncovering individual decision heuristics
    Benjamin Scheibehenne
    Center for Adaptive Behavior and Cognition, Max Planck Institute for Human Development, Lentzeallee 94, 14195 Berlin, Germany
    Appetite 49:578-89. 2007
    ..This result questions the adequacy of weighted additive models as sole descriptions of human decision making in the food domain and provides evidence that food choices may instead be based on simple heuristics...

    Jutta Mata
    Center for Adaptive Behavior and Cognition, Max Planck Institute for Human Development, Lentzeallee 94, 14195 Berlin, Germany
    Appetite 50:367-75. 2008
    ..Overall, parents' accuracy in predicting their children's food preferences was as good as or better than found in previous preference prediction studies that used less ecologically relevant task domains...
