An influential claim in recent evolutionary psychology is that the human mind is, at least in substantial part, a product of selection pressures for surviving in a social environment. This has given rise to a number of claims about the uniqueness of human forms of social cognition.

The adaptive significance of animal coloration is clear: it matters for survival (camouflage, warning coloration, mimicry) and it matters for reproduction (sexual and social signalling). But what about wavelengths that we cannot see?

Phosphatidylserine (PS) is predominantly confined to the inner leaflet of the plasma membrane in eukaryotes through the action of ATP-dependent phospholipid-transporting flippases. PS can be exposed on the cell surface by scramblases in apoptotic cells and activated platelets.
