  2. Adaptation to Moving Targets: Culture/Gene Coevolution, Not Either/Or.H. Clark Barrett, Willem E. Frankenhuis & Andreas Wilke - 2008 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 31 (5):511-512.
    We agree that much of language evolution is likely to be adaptation of languages to properties of the brain. However, the attempt to rule out the existence of language-specific adaptations a priori is misguided. In particular, the claim that adaptation to cannot occur is false. Instead, the details of gene-culture coevolution in language are an empirical matter.

    Adding the Missing Link Back Into Mate Choice Research.Rui Mata, Andreas Wilke & Peter M. Todd - 2005 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 28 (2):289-289.
    Evolutionary psychologists should go beyond research on individual differences in attitudes and focus more on detailed models of psychological mechanisms. We argue for complementing attitude research with agent-based computational modeling of mate choice. Agent-based models require detailed specification of individual choice mechanisms that can be evaluated in terms of both their psychological plausibility and the population-level outcomes they produce.

    Reconciling Vague and Formal Models of Language Evolution.Henry Brighton, Rui Mata & Andreas Wilke - 2006 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 29 (3):282-282.
    One way of dealing with the proliferation of conjectures that accompany the diverse study of the evolution of language is to develop precise and testable models which reveal otherwise latent implications. We suggest how verbal theories of the role of individual development in language evolution can benefit from formal modeling, and vice versa.
