  1. R. Michael Brown & Stephanie L. Brown (2007). Towards Uniting the Behavioral Sciences with a Gene-Centered Approach to Altruism. Behavioral and Brain Sciences 30 (1):19-20.
    We support the ambitious goal of unification within the behavioral sciences. We suggest that Darwinian evolution by means of natural selection can provide the integrative glue for this purpose, and we review our own work on selective investment theory (SIT), which is an example of how other-regarding preferences can be accommodated by a gene-centered account of evolution. (Published Online April 27 2007).

  3. Stephanie L. Brown & R. Michael Brown (2005). Social Bonds, Motivational Conflict, and Altruism: Implications for Neurobiology. Behavioral and Brain Sciences 28 (3):351-352.
    Depue & Morrone-Strupinsky (D&M-S) do not address how a reward system accommodates the motivational dilemmas associated with (a) the decision to approach versus avoid conspecifics, and (b) self versus other tradeoffs inherent in behaving altruistically toward bonded relationship partners. We provide an alternative evolutionary view that addresses motivational conflict, and discuss implications for the neurobiological study of affiliative bonds.

  4. Stephanie L. Brown & Douglas T. Kenrick (1997). Paradoxical Self-Deception: Maybe Not so Paradoxical After All. Behavioral and Brain Sciences 20 (1):109-110.
    The simultaneous possession of conflicting beliefs is both possible and logical within current models of human cognition. Specifically, evidence of lateral inhibition and state-dependent memory suggests a means by which conflicting beliefs can coexist without requiring “mental exotica.” We suggest that paradoxical self-deception enables the self-deceiver to store important information for use at a later time.
