Homework Help: Evolutionary Psychology

Posted by Aq on Wednesday, December 3, 2008 at 6:58pm.

Testosterone has been associated with a willingness to take risks, engage in aggression, and over estimate one's chances of success. Sustaining high level of testosterone has health costs, and is one of the reasons why men live shorter lives than women everywhere. Male testosterone suffers two big drops over the life course, once after marriage and once after children start arriving. Apply the logic of natural selection to explain these drops.
a) Why might it be adaptive for testosterone to drop after each of these events?
b)How will this change males behavior in an adaptive way?
