"The psychological basis of ownership and possession: A comparative and developmental perspective" & "Neandertal population history: insights from 17,367 protein-coding genes"

Speaker: Patricia Kanngiesser (Dept. of Developmental and Comparative Psychology), Sergi Castellano (Dept. of Evolutionary Genetics)
The Institute Seminar Series

Location:
MPI-EVA, Lecture hall, 2nd floor

Abstract:
- 14:00 Patricia Kanngiesser: The psychological basis of ownership and possession: A comparative and developmental perspective
Ownership of property is an important social, legal and economic institution in Western societies and conceivably a universal feature of all human groups. In this talk I will explore the psychological basis of property ownership by drawing on research with non-human great apes and with human children from Western as well as non-Western populations.

- 14:45 Sergi Castellano: Neandertal population history: insights from 17,367 protein-coding genes
We use a hybridization approach to enrich the DNA from the protein-coding fraction of the genomes of two Neandertal individuals from Spain and Croatia. By analyzing these two exomes together with the genome sequence of a Neandertal from Siberia we show that the genetic diversity of Neandertals was lower than that of present-day humans and that the pattern of coding variation suggests that Neandertal populations were small and isolated from one another. Inferences of the effective population size of these Neandertal populations using the sequence of chromosome 21 support these observations. We also show that genes involved in skeletal morphology have changed more than expected on the Neandertal evolutionary lineage whereas genes involved in pigmentation and behavior have changed more on the modern human lineage.

- 16:30 Discussion and soft drinks just outside the lecture hall

The series featuring internal speakers takes place roughly every two months on Friday early afternoons. Per session there are two speakers, one from each of two departments. Each will speak for 30 minutes with 15 minutes for questions. Refreshments are provided at the end of the sessions. The committee organizing the seminar series consists of: Aida Andrés, Catherine Crockford, Paul Heggarty, Federico Rossano, Alexander Stoessel, Sandra Jacob and Jörg Noack. Please contact any of them with comments or suggestions.

Social motivation and early false-belief understanding
February 05, 2015 13:00
Speaker: Katharina Anna Helming (University of Trier and Institute Jean Nicod, Paris)
Talk at the Department of Psychology

Location:
Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology Seminar room Linguistics/Psychology (U 1.50)

Abstract:
First, I will sketch a pragmatic solution to the puzzle about early belief ascription: young children fail elicited-response false-belief tasks, but they demonstrate spontaneous false-belief understanding. I will argue that what makes the standard where-prediction question so taxing for children before the age of four is that it simultaneously requires them to take a third-person perspective on the mistaken agent’s instrumental action, while taking a second-person perspective on the experimenter’s communicative action. Secondly, in support of this view, I will present novel empirical data showing that 3-year-olds succeed in social versions of the elicited-response false-belief task in which they are asked to take a second-person perspective onto the instrumental action of a mistaken agent. Finally I will discuss a possible in and out group manipulation for the false-belief task, and preliminary data on establishing in-group bias in 3 year olds.
