Originally published in Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books, 1978, Vol 23(12), 1008–1010. Reviews the book, Psychobiological Aspects of Cognitive Growth by Reuven Kohen-Raz (1977). In the preface to this book, the author states that this book deals primarily with “borderline” phenomena of cognitive development such as the relation between physical and mental growth spurts, the linkages between static balance abilities and school readiness, and the effects of birth season on mental growth. By dealing with these topics, he hopes to widen the common ground for interdisciplinary research in developmental psychology, education, and pediatrics, and to balance the overemphasis of social factors in education theory with biological ones.
