Suddenly, we then have the automagical affects of oxytocin on behavior with no need for social neuroscience.
— as modeled across the ecological, social and neurogenic niche construction that contribute to the adaptive evolution of our cognitive niche.
Pheromones are like food odors. Not every food is equally appealing. But we can enhance individual appeal with pheromones just like we can spice up the appeal of food.
Should the behavior analysts’ approach be compared to a biologically-based approach with a dietary supplement?
This effect helps to explain why the odor preferences of mammals, including humans, appear to develop before birth, but it probably has nothing to do with visual input except via its association with olfactory/pheromonal input, neurogenesis, learning and memory.
Insects serve as a model for human brain function.
