if the hypothesized phenotype fits the formal definition of an adaptation; see Table 1), and if further (empirical) tests reveal that performance is enhanced in modern humans when information is presented in a format that would have been likely in the environment of evolutionary adaptedness (EEA; that is, the ancestral environment), then the mental machinery responsible for solving the task can be considered to be a bona fide mental module.
