Does anyone know some references (e.g. papers or book chapters) that discuss aspects of the adaptivity of human/animal based on studying the behavior and ideally, what computational objectives pertaining to the adaptivity of human/animal have been or can be suggested based on them?

An example: Animals should adapt to their environment to survive, they should develop whatever [computation] needed to detect the hunter and escape timely. They should update their internal model (whatever we define the internal model), with changes in their environment.


Dynamic systems analysis has recently made inroads into psychology. Quirin et al.(2020) consider adaptive processes and may be a place for you to start.
