Biological Correlates of Behavior

by Dorothy H. Eichorn - 1963

Human biology encompasses the study of all the structural and functional characteristics of man, from the cellular to the organismic level, and their ontogenesis. Advances in technology have made it possible to extend cytologic and histologic studies to the point where behavioral correlates may be sought even at these levels, and progress in both the biological and physical sciences has resulted in the emergence, within the broader interdisciplinary fields of biochemistry and biophysics, of highly specialized disciplines such as histochemistry and cytochemistry. The topics singled out for discussion here are ones which offer a group of studies with some direct behavioral implications. Each section demonstrates a different way of systematizing the biological data and their potential behavioral correlates.
