Evolutionary psychology is a theoretical approach to psychology that attempts to explain useful mental and psychological traits—such as memory, perception, or language—as adaptations, i.e., as the functional products of natural selection. Evolutionary psychology seeks to reconstruct problems that our ancestors faced in their primitive environments, and the problem-solving behaviors they created to meet those particular challenges. From these reconstructed problem-solving adaptations, the science then attempts to establish the common roots of our ancestral behavior, and how those common behavioral roots are manifested today in the widely scattered cultures of the planet. The ultimate goal is behavior aimed at the passing of one's genes into the next generation. Evolutionary psychology is the belief that all humans on the planet have innate areas in their brains which have specific knowledge that help them adapt to local environments. These areas are highly specialized, and only activate when the information is needed. These areas, when activated, give the brain specific algorithmic (step by step) instructions that have evolved from our ancestral pasts to adapt to all situations that we now face as humans. Some scientists speculate that these areas are attachments to long-term memory areas, and assist in problem-solving.
