5. Intergroup relations The social psychology we’ve studied so far has helped us understand why we have a world in which prejudice, stereotyping, and social exclusion remain pervasive problems. Cognitive biases like heuristics lead to illusory correlation, so that minority groups (like Muslims or immigrants) are seemingly linked with occurrences of bad things like terrorism and economic recession. We’ve seen how frustration can turn to aggression that needs to be released, and how minority groups are the ‘easy option’ for this cathartic process. We’ve also seen how a few people have prejudiced personalities, and how through social influence processes they

7. The wisdom of crowds Self-organization There is something mysterious about the way a flock of thousands of birds seems to manoeuvre as one, or the way a school of fish divides and reforms as it moves around a predator. Similarly the busy activity of ants leaving and returning to a nest catches our attention. While we can see the behaviour of individual animals as they move and interact, there is a level of organization and apparent coordination that is visible at the level of the flock, school, or nest. Recent work on collective animal behaviour shows that relatively simple

4. Models of depression Epidemiological studies of depression give important insights into populations at higher risk of depression. For example, the prevalence of depression is higher in groups living in socially adverse conditions, and is higher in those with a recent experience of bereavement. However, not everyone in these circumstances will develop a clinical depression. Theories about the causes of depressive illnesses can help to clarify the reasons for these individual differences. Here, we highlight some of the best-known biological, psychological, and social models and then discuss attempts to integrate these into a multi-dimensional theory.

5. Carnivorous mammals Insectivorous mammals We think that the common ancestor of all the modern mammals was small and mainly active at night, and judging by their teeth, fed on insects, worms, and other invertebrates. Several kinds of mammals still follow this mode of life today, such as the placental shrews, moles, hedgehogs, the tenrecs of Madagascar, and, amongst the marsupials, many of the opossums of South America and Australia. All have sharp, pointed incisors and canines for capturing the prey, followed by sharp-crested premolar and molar teeth. Once the food is in the mouth, the first action of the
