Booklist Review: "Diamond, a foremost neuroscientist for the past 30 years, has produced an authoritative review of the research on brain development. Style and format are clinical here, with the focus on experiments with rats. The author correlates brain chemistry, behavior, and environment, with those findings then related to other studies in neuroscience. (For example, Einstein's brain was studied for cell size and shape after years of experiments showed a correlation between intelligence and brain dimensions.) Other areas of human psychology and physiology discussed include Alzheimer's disease and the effects of oral contraceptives such as nonrethynodrel. Diamond concludes that environment can and does affect brain growth. An excellent volume for more serious students of the brain, Enriching Heredity also provides fascinating tidbits of information for the interested general reader. References; to be indexed.
