International Review of Research in Mental Retardation. Volume 5.
Ellis, Norman R., Ed.
The stated purpose of the text is to review and interpret current behavioral research in mental retardation (including that done abroad) and to provide a forum for theories and new approaches. Eight chapters by different authors focus on the following subjects: medical-behavioral research; recognition memory: a research strategy and summary of initial findings; an overview of operant procedures in the laboratory; methodology of psychopharmacological studies; process variables in paired-associate learning; sequential dot presentation measures of stimulus trace in retardates and normals; cultural-familial retardation; and the emphasis on structure in German theory and research. The editor summarizes the areas most frequently researched as well as those most often neglected. (RJ)
