Human brains excel at detecting cheaters

Nobody likes a cheater. And now there is evidence that our brains may have a very specific adaptation to identify cheating in social situations. Humans’ propensity to exchange goods and services is ubiquitous across all cultures, but these social exchanges only function well when the incidence of cheaters is low; therefore, the ability to detect cheaters in this type of exchange is probably under strong selection. An article in PNAS last week suggests that humans' ability to detect violations of social contracts is incredibly accurate, but it's a skill that cannot necessarily be generalized to other logical reasoning situations.
