Measuring Behavioral Phenotypes: Provocations from the "New Genetics."
Dykens, Elisabeth M.
American Journal on Mental Retardation, v99 n5 p522-32 Mar 1995
This paper considers key properties of behavioral phenotypes of mental retardation syndromes, including within-syndrome variability and between-syndrome similarities and qualitative differences. The "new genetics" research requires combining data from three strategies: (1) a psychiatric approach, (2) psychometric methods, and (3) syndrome-specific observations. (Author/DB)
