Understanding Social Contagion in Adoption Processes Using Dynamic Social Networks.
There are many studies in the marketing and diffusion literature of the conditions in which social contagion affects adoption processes. Yet most of these studies assume that social interactions do not change over time, even though actors in social n

Social Attention in the Two Species of Pan: Bonobos Make More Eye Contact than Chimpanzees.
Humans' two closest primate living relatives, bonobos and chimpanzees, differ behaviorally, cognitively, and emotionally in several ways despite their general similarities. While bonobos show more affiliative behaviors towards conspecifics, chimpanze

Aging and social perception: so far, more similarities than differences.

Social image concerns promote cooperation more than altruistic punishment.
Human cooperation is enigmatic, as organisms are expected, by evolutionary and economic theory, to act principally in their own interests. However, cooperation requires individuals to sacrifice resources for each other's benefit. We conducted a serie

Social networks in primates: smart and tolerant species have more efficient networks.
Network optimality has been described in genes, proteins and human communicative networks. In the latter, optimality leads to the efficient transmission of information with a minimum number of connections. Whilst studies show that differences in cent
