Visiting Assistant Professor of Psychology Jon A. Sefcek has published a research paper about the evolution of general intelligence in humans. “A Life-History Model of Human Fitness Indicators,” co-authored with Aurelio José Figueredo of the University of Arizona, appears in the current issue of the journal Biodemography and Social Biology.

Based partially on Sefcek’s doctoral dissertation, this research explored the connection between intelligence, family relationships, mating behaviors and physical and psychological health in a population of students from three Southern Arizona college campuses. The results indicated physical and psychological health, family relationships, and mating behaviors were strongly connected, but failed to find any predicted relationship of these factors with intelligence.
