Brain and Intelligence, a Quantitative Study of the Frontal Lobes
Ward C.Halstead. Brain and Intelligence, a Quantitative Study of the Frontal Lobes. Chicago: The University of Chicago Press, 1947
Over a period of twelve years, 1935 to 1947, Halstead gave a special battery of tests to 50 cases of cerebral lobectomy, of which 28 were frontal, and to 187 other experimental and control subjects. The effect of experimental anoxia on the test scores is reported. Clinical psychologists will view Halstead's research with mixed feelings. Its undeniable virtues lie in the long-continued work on one problem, in the experimental precision of the testing procedures, and in the close coordination of the psychological and neurological study. Brain and Intelligence raises enough challenging questions to stimulate another generation of research work on the interrelations between experimental, clinical, and physiological psychology.
