Louise Barrett



Louise Barret is an ecologist and anthropologist by training, and has spent most of the last twenty-odd years working on monkeys in Uganda and South Africa, asking questions about how social life shapes brain evolution, life history strategies, reproductive success and what this can (and can’t) tell us about human evolution. In addition, she also studies human reproductive decision-making in bio-social perspective, and does theoretical work in the realm of 4E cognition (embodied, embedded, enactive and extended).
