Evan Caldbick, Psychology

I am an MA candidate in Psychology where my interests are in behavioural endocrinology and social psychology under the supervision of Dr. Neil Watson. My research explores the relationships between steroid hormones and social conflict and cooperation. This work involves collecting saliva samples from human subjects to determine the bioavailability of hormones such as testosterone and cortisol, and to compare these concentrations with behavioural measures of social cooperation using scenarios adapted from game theory.
