    L’Anthropologie génétique est une science qui cherche à retracer l’histoire des peuplements humains à travers le monde en faisant parler leurs gènes. Cette discipline permet d’évaluer l’importance de la sélection naturelle et à comprendre en quoi le fait d’être « un animal social » a pu jouer sur l’évolution biologique. Grâce à notre invitée, la Professeure Evelyne Heyer, nous allons comprendre comment les comportements socio-culturels et leur transmission ont un impact sur l’évolution génétique. Nous sommes le Mercredi 11 Avril et vous écoutez l’émission 336 de Podcast Science. Bienvenue!

    This week we talk about appearance, bodies, and body image. Why does what we look like affect our headspace so much? And how do we even begin to research a topic as personal and subjective as body image? To try and find out, we speak with some of the researchers at the Centre for Appearance Research (CAR) at the University of the West of England in Bristol. Psychology Professor Phillippa Diedrichs walks us through body image research, what we know so far, and how we know what we know. Professor of Appearance and Health Psychology Diana Harcourt talks about visible difference caused by disease and accident and how those can impact our mental health. And we chat with Nadia Craddock and Jade Parnell about the CAR "Appearance Matters" podcast.
