Genetic Endowment and Environment in the Determination of Behavior.
Ehrman, Lee; And Others
A research workshop was organized to bring together geneticists, psychologists, and other behavioral scientists. The intent was to bring about an interaction of ideas concerned with the genetics of behavior and learning. The emphasis was upon interdisciplinary study among scientists from several fields. Specific issues were isolated in those areas where the research of one scientist was applicable to the questions of another. The workshop format consisted of the presentation of prepared papers and informal discussions among twenty invited participants. Among the topics discussed were heritability, frequency-dependent genetically-controlled behavior, inheritance of somatotypes, methods of I.Q. measurement, and the use of cooperative studies in the collection of core data. No specific workshop conclusions were reached, since the intent was the stimulation and facilitation of interdisciplinary interactions. Post-workshop communication among the participants indicates that some long range benefits will be realized. The program was sponsored by the National Academy of Sciences and the National Academy of Education. It was supported by the U.S. Office of Education. (BW)
