The effect of mothers' diets on the intelligence of offspring; a study of the influence of vitamin supplementation of the diets of pregnant and lactating women on the intelligence of their children by Ruth Flinn Harrell( Book )

4 editions published in 1955 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This study attempts to gather factual data on the question: Is the intelligence of the young so related to its early-life nutrition that dietary supplements of vitamins during this formative period exert a measurable effect on the intelligence quotient? This is an important and complex question involving many interrelated factors of which prenatal nutrition is but one. The idea that a maternal diet inadequate in certain respects during pregnancy and lactation might be a factor militating against the optimum development of the nervous system of the fetus occurred to Harrell in the early 1930's. While testing numbers of retarded children and taking their histories, she noted the high incidence of faulty nutrition in the early lives of these mental defectives. At the suggestion of Dr. Walter E. Dandy and with the aid of Dr. E. V. McCollum, she tested the suspected relationship of early-life nutrition to later mental ability in Dr. McCollum's animal laboratory at the Johns Hopkins Hospital. These observations of the maze-learning ability of rats whose mothers were experimentally starved during pregnancy and lactation were not extensive enough to report separately, but their results were consistent and encouraging enough that later Harrell proposed to the other participants of the present study a large scale inquiry using nutritional enrichment during pregnancy and lactation on the human level"--Book.

The measurement of intelligence by Edward L Thorndike( Book )

4 editions published between 1927 and 1973 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume represents the fruits of three years of investigation (from July 1, 1922, to July 1, 1925) by the Division of Psychology of the Institute of Educational Research. It attempts to answer the essential questions concerning the nature and meaning of the measurement of a mental fact in the sample case of intelligence, or rather of a defined segment thereof. Its conclusions, in so far as they are warranted, should become the basis of sound practice in the construction and calibration of scales for use in mental measurement. According to them, the present theory and practice of measurement of mental abilities are justified to a remarkable degree in certain respects, but in others should be almost recreated"--Preface.
