I recommend that the subtopic titles be drastically shortened; else the TOC is taking up over 50% of the document width with almost "sentence" subheadings. --[[User:Robert W King|Robert W King]] 14:54, 8 January 2008 (CST)

Starting new article, "Evolutionary medicine"

For the Nov07 Write-a-Thon, I started new article, "Evolutionary medicine". Need to work on references to give links to abstracts and/or full-text. --Anthony.Sebastian (Talk) 18:43, 7 November 2007 (CST)

Duplicate

Superb idea. A small technical issue:

       * Lewis Wolpert:  The evolutionary biology of depression 

and

       * Ed Hagen:  The bargaining model of suicidality 

both have the following as abstracts:

           "It has recently been proposed that depression and suicidality might be bargaining strategies... a hypothesis I test... As predicted by the bargaining hypothesis, in a large subgroup of cases there is clear recognition by all parties involved that suicidality is meant to apply pressure in intense social disputes. In many cases, the strategy works, yielding benefits for the suicidal individual." 

Thanks again for starting this article! Pierre-Alain Gouanvic 15:54, 17 November 2007 (CST)

Evolutionary explanations in medical and health profession courses: are you answering your students' "why" questions?

This is the title of a research that might be useful in this article. Pierre-Alain Gouanvic 11:48, 8 January 2008 (CST)

Thanks for suggestions and edits, Pierre-Alain

Pierre-Alain: Thanks for inserting the full-text reference to Dobzhansky's Biology Teacher article. Too bad they misspelled his last name on the title page. I'll alert readers to that in a note.

And thanks for the suggested topics and references. I somewhat hurriedly started the article, expecting to reference later.

Please jump in with content if you've a mind.
