I work for WNYC public radio and I am working on a piece about big eyes. Why do we find them cute? Is it true that we are hardwired to want to protect babies because of their big eyes? Or do we just associate wanting to protect babies with the way babies happen to look (big eyes that don't grow much over time)? Is it true that early humans knew to mate with big eyes/small mouth people because they didn't look cro-magnin? I would love to talk with a scientist or professor of science about this. Thank you.
