Biological Bases of Individual Behavior contains a mixture of papers from East and West. The book can be organized into two parts. The articles in the first part, which might broadly be termed ""physiological"", examine a number of questions relating to the physiological constitution and to methods of measuring the properties of the nervous system. This section opens with one of Teplov's last papers, which contains a lucid exposition of the main results of research carried out in 1964 in the laboratory he directed. The other articles in this section elucidate the use of electroencephalographic and Chronometrie methods of studying the properties of the nervous system; examine problems of sensitivity and ""partiality"" in the manifestation of the basic properties; and present the results of experiments conducted to study the correlations between certain properties of the nervous system and features of the human constitution, as well as between age and neurodynamic factors. The second part of the volume may be described as psychophysiological. It consists of articles which examine the possible physiological mechanisms of individual psychological features of behavior. Many are devoted to either experimental or theoretical analysis of the neurophysiological bases of the personality dimension of extraversiσn-introversion.
