≪Organizer Abstract≫
A number of studies indicated that humans have evolved a variety of psychological adaptions for group living. Researchers have also demonstrated that non-human primates have highly cognitive ability to cooperate and coordinate with other group members as well as humans. However, it is relatively uncovered evolutionary origins of human bonding mechanism, which makes strong affiliation even among non-kin individuals. This symposium will provide a unique gathering of researchers engaged in studies about a variety of communication that promotes affiliative relationships in humans and non-human primates. It also includes new perspectives for understanding the evolutionary origins of human uniquely bonding mechanism.
