Document Summary

Altruism: occurs when an individual aids another individual, but in the process causes some harm to themselves. Cooperation: mechanisms within an organism which first receive input from the environment, then process the information and finally respond to it, a tightly coiled molecule made of dna (deoxyribonucleic acid) that is partly covered by protein; contains genes. The likelihood that two people share a particular characteristic. Situations in which one individuals gains an advantage from helping another individual. Adaptations designed to solve a particular problem (ie. selecting a suitable mate, choosing safe foods to eat, avoiding certain environmental hazards, etc. ); suggest that the human mind is not a general (all purpose) problem solver but rather a collection of specialized independent modules evolved to handle specific adaptive problems. The characteristic this gene controls will be displayed if paired up with a recessive gene.
