April 18: 'Menstrual Cycles, Hormones, and Mate Preferences' lecture

Does a woman’s menstrual cycle influence her interest in a man? University of Southern California researcher Wendy Wood will discuss her investigatory findings in the spring keynote address for the Colloquium Series in Psychological Sciences and Human Behavior at Penn State Erie, The Behrend College.

Her presentation, “Menstrual Cycles, Hormones, and Mate Preferences: Thoughts on Human Evolution,” takes place at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, April 18, in the second-floor auditorium of the Reed Union Building on campus. Admission to the event is free and open to the public.

Wood is USC’s Provost Professor of Psychology and Business, a Fellow of both the American Psychological Association and American Psychological Society, and a founding member of the Society for Research Synthesis Methodology. Prior to joining USC, she served as co-director of the Social Science Institute at Duke University.

This Colloquium Series in Psychological Sciences and Human Behavior event is hosted by Penn State Behrend’s B.A. and B.S. in Psychology degree programs and the student Psychology Coalition with support from the Susan Hirt Hagen Center for Community Outreach, Research and Evaluation (CORE), the School of Humanities and Social Sciences and the Student Activity Fee.
