    Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 104:5246-51. 2007
    ..Our results demonstrate how a proximal cognitive mechanism, itself likely the product of selection pressures, helps to reconcile previous contradictory findings...

    Proc Biol Sci 279:4982-9. 2012
    ..Moreover, these tendencies were modulated by emotion context (study 4). Thus, male categorizations occurred readily and rapidly, demonstrating a pronounced categorization bias and temporal advantage for male judgements...

    Department of Communication Studies, University of California, Los Angeles, Los Angeles, CA 90095, USA
    J Pers Soc Psychol 102:116-31. 2012
    ..These findings challenge the notion that social categories are perceived independent of one another and show, instead, that race is gendered...

    Department of Psychology, New York University, USA

    Department of Communication Studies and Psychology, University of California, Los Angeles, CA 90095, USA
    Cognition 119:265-80. 2011
