The structure and measurement of intelligence by H. J Eysenck( Book )
24 editions published between 1979 and 2007 in 3 languages and held by 859 libraries worldwide
"What is meant by the term "intelligence" and, once de- fined, how do we go about achieving a valid measurement of this faculty? This classic textbook, originally published in 1979, and now reissued with a new preface by Sybil Eysenck, incorporates a broad range of findings and reanalyzes much of the existing literature in this area. In The Structure and Measurement of Intelligence, Hans Eysenck draws on methods for determining the effect of genetics and environment on the development of intelligence and examines the validity of the term as defined in relation to internal as well as external criteria. He tests a number of hypotheses on intelligence against empirical research findings and considers various criticisms in detail. The significance of intelligence and its measurement in society are explored in depth. Eysenck greatly expands upon such questions as: Does IQ measure intelligence? How valid is the nature versus nurture argument? and, How might socioeconomic status influence one's intelligence? Designed primarily for students and scholars in psychology and education, this text will make thought-provoking reading for all concerned with the development and measurement of intelligence in the individual."--Provided by publisher
Nature and nurture during infancy and early childhood by Robert Plomin( Book )
21 editions published between 1988 and 2006 in English and held by 617 libraries worldwide
Quantitative genetics offers a general theory of the development of individual differences that suggests novel concepts and research strategies: the idea that genetic influences operate in age-to-age change as well as in continuity for example. Quantitative genetics also provides powerful methods to address questions of change and continuity, including model-fitting approaches that test the fit between a specific model of genetic and environmental influences and observed correlations among family members, which are here helpfully introduced. A simple parent and offspring model is extended to include longitudinal and multivariate analyses. Longitudinal quantitative genetic research is essential to the understanding of developmental change and continuity. The largest and longest longitudinal adoption study is the Colorado Adoption Project, which has generated much of the rich data on the progress from infancy to early childhood on which the authors draw throughout this 1988 book. Their conclusions about what we know, and what we need to learn, about the origins of individual differences will interest a wide range of readers
Nature and nurture during middle childhood by J. C DeFries( Book )
6 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 396 libraries worldwide
What are the origins of individual differences? Virtually no one studying human development today sees the nature/nurture question as an either-or one. However, very few developmental researchers as yet appreciate the extent to which it is now possible to map genetic influences in a range of domains from cognitive functioning to temperament all through the childhood years. (For example, although there is substantial genetic continuity for measures of general cognitive ability from infancy to early childhood, new genetic influences emerge to affect IQ in middle childhood, when specific cognitive abilities also begin to differentiate.) Even fewer developmental researchers appreciate the startling way in which expressions of the child's genetic endowment appear to affect what we have been accustomed to thinking of as stable environmental forces. In this book, three leading international authorities on behavior genetics and their collaborators present the most recent findings from the landmark Colorado Adoption Project. This first large-scale, longitudinal adoption study, launched in 1975, tracked the children, biological and adoptive parents, and home environments of 245 adoptive families and 245 matched non-adoptive families. Its design facilitated analyses of genetic and environmental influences on development of unparalleled scope and diversity - via both parent-offspring and sibling comparisons, and longitudinal and multivariate assessments. Following two introductory chapters, the authors focus successively on general and specific cognitive abilities, school achievement, language disorders, personality, stress, body size and obesity, motoric development, sex differences, competence, and family relationships. Before summarizing and concluding, they then turn to issues like the meaning of "shared" environment, the correlations and interactions between "nature" and "nurture," and the practical implications of the findings for adoption policy. Nature and Nurture During Middle Childhood will be crucial reading for every serious developmental researcher

The Colorado adoption project by J. C DeFries( file )
1 edition published in 1976 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
The Colorado Adoption Project consists of 490 families (245 adoptive and 245 matched controls) which can be divided into three subsamples: adoptive parents, who share only family environment with their adopted children; biological (birth) parents, who share only heredity with their adopted-away children; and control (nonadoptive) parents, who share both heredity and family environment with their children. The "full" adoption design includes data collected from adoptive and nonadoptive families, including younger siblings, and biological fathers when possible. Children are studied in their homes at 1, 2, 3, and 4 years of age and are followed up yearly. Each birth year is represented as a separate cohort which may contain siblings from earlier cohorts. The first wave of data was collected in 1976, with waves following every year thereafter
