THE HI TORY OF P YCHOLOGY has been clo ely intertwined with intere tin uch phenomena a giftedness, creativity, geniu , precocity, and high level of achievement; particular attention has focu ed for many year on the tudy and mea urement of intelligence (Binet and Simon 1908; Galton 1883; Spearman 1923). Forty year ago there wa con iderable agreement that intelligence was a fixed, genetically determined, probably unitary trait, which could be mea ured early in life and which determined an individual' potential. Intere t in intelligence wa more applied than cientific, with most re earcher adopting a "black-box" per pective on the nature of intelligence. While intelligence te ting remained a commercial ucce , cientific intere t in the topic of intelligence waned in the 1960 and early 1970 for both ocial and cientific rea on . Three eparate line of thinking have given new impetu to the tudy of is ue of giftedne ,talent, and intelligence.

Although Piaget' particular cluim have b n challenged, the kind of cognitive i ue which he addre ed, and th way in which he conceived m ntal tru ture and operation , have been ver influential. A ccond line of thinkin reflect a belief in the .\eparabilily of variou cognitive domains. In oppo ition both to pearman' "g" (general) factor and to the Piagetian per pective, re earcher now recognize the exitcnce of a number of emiautonomou domain of cogniti n, built around different c ntents (F dor 19 3; ardner 1983); for example, language, mu ic, and mathematical thinking. The biological underpinning of the e epa rate domain or module ha become a ubject f continuing peculation. The third invi orating force ha been the infonnation-proce. sing approach to cognition. trongl influenced b the example of the di ital computer, many cognitivel -oriented cienti ts think of the human being a a kind of computer and de ribe p ific ta k in term of their informational demand and operation ( ewell and imon 1972; ternberg 1977).

For example, the computational level (what i the goal of a computation); the repre entational (or algorithmic) level (how a computational account can be implemented); and the level of phy ical implementation (in what way can the algorithm be realized in the hardware of a brain or of a computer) have been di tingui hed (Marr 1982).

Neural development tudie with vertebrate have clarified the cour e of neural development, including the variou pha e , which ucceed one another before the mature nervou y tern i finally in place. There icon iderable pia ticity in early development, but al 0 critical period , during which certain events mu t occur if development i to proceed in a normal way. Some neural proce e occur during very brief time pan and any deviation may produce rna sive effects: other proce e occur very gradually and the effects of deviation are Ie virulent. Pathologie can bring about neural reorganization : deaf individual who have learned to u e ign language employ the "language area " of the brain for thi ge tural ability. During early development, an exce number of connection b tween neuron are made: then, during a ucce i e pha e, the e exce connection con i ting of the dendrite and axon which form the branching connection between neuron are pruned or tabilized. Far from undermining the behavior of the organi m, the removal or atrophying of exce ,connection i nece ary for normal functioning. The election of p cific cell or axon i not trictly programmed and dep nd upon local developmental factor. In general, abnormalitie in neural development characterize mutants who do not thrive: till, the kind of analy e which have hitherto been applied to mutants might al 0 prove apt for organi m which perform at high level or are "at promi e" for unu ual p rformance.

It i not clear which kind of behavior i mo t relevant for tudie of giftedne . On the one hand, tho e behavior which are mo t natural in the pecie, and which are characterized by a high amount of pontaneou behavior, provide the be t model; for example, there are pecie of bee which are very killed at learning new a ociation. On the other hand, tho e behavior which tretch the pecie beyond i u ual boundarie (like a chimpanzee learning word or peeling potatoe) might provide a better analogy to human giftedne . There are reportedly animal who excel in rna tering the e "nonnatural" behavior (Premack).

Animals as experimental models

A number of behavior which have been carefully tudied in animal might be examined for clue concerning the neural ub trate and the mechani m of gifted performance. Example are bee earching for pollen in flower , the rna tery of bird ong, echo localization in bats, and the olving of problem or the learning of word by chimpanzee . In each ca e, there are clear individual difference among organi m ; experimental manipulation can indicate the factor which influence performance; and tudie of the underlying neural ub trate of performance can be carried out. Of particular intere t are tho e behavior, like bird ong, or emotional reactivity in rats, which appear to be lateralized in the nervou y tern (i.e., be under the control of the left or the right hemi phere, re pectively). uch neuroanatomical a ymmetric may hold valuable clue concerning cerebral dominance in Animals as models: behavioral analysis man.

Recent Developments in Project Link by Bert C. Hickman and Lawrence R. KLein*

PROJECT LINK I A PIONEERING EFFORT to integrate econometric model of individual countrie into a functioning multinational model of the world economy. There are everal world model, developed mainly in the pa t five or ten year . E tabli hed in 1968 under the au pice of the Council' Committee on Economic Stability and Growth, Project LINK ha expanded from a nucleu of 10 econometrician and ix country model to more than 100 participants and 72 models-and it i till growing. The evolution of LINK during the 1970 wa de cribed in our earlier article, "A Decade of Reearch by Project LINK" publi hed in Items, December 1979. The pre ent report bring the tory up to date, with bibliographical reference for the year 198~ 1985.

General characteristics of the LINK system From its inception, Project LINK ha encompa ed a global olution and ummary of country and regional model , providing a con i tent accounting of multilateral trade flow and price. Unlike pure trade model, however, the LI K Y tern take explicit account of (1) interaction between dome tic economic developments and policie in the member countrie and (2) the level and compo ition of international trade. Each LINK olution provide a matrix of world trade flow , with the exports of each country di tributed aero a ingle row to its trading partner , and the imports of each country given by the urn of entrie In 1 column. Thi i an exhau tive repre entation of total trade, ati fying the world trade definition that the urn of exports from all countrie equal the corre ponding urn of imports. A imilar calculation en ures that import price for each country are .The author are, r pectively, professor of economi at tanford Univer ity and Benjamin Franklin professor of economi at the Univer ity of Penn ylvania.

properly-weighted average of the export price of the upplying countrie . The olution al 0 yield the national outputs and price level of the con tituent countrie and a correponding e timate of world GNP. Detail i al 0 available on inflation rate and trade balance in the member countrie and on many other a pects of dome tic economic activity in mo t of them. The activity level of each country are partly determined by the dome tic factor pecific to it-in particular, by its fi cal, monetary, trade, and exchange rate policie and partly by its interaction with other countrie . By olving the entire y tern globally, LINK effectively endogenize tho e variable -import price , export demand ,capital flow , and exchange rates-that are typically taken a given exogenou Iy in a tand-alone country model. Becau e thi i a general equilibrium y tern of linked country model , it may be u ed not only to forecast world activity and trade but al 0 to inve tigate the international tran mi ion mechani m and to evaluate the international impacts of upply hock and unilateral or multilateral policy initiative for tability and growth .. The power and flexibility of the y tern may be illu trated by orne example of recent LINK re earch activitie .

Recent app lications The y tern i regularly u ed to foreca t the future path of the world economy over a four-year horizon, on the ba i of pre ent and pro pective policie in the member countrie a evaluated by their local modeling center . The e foreca ts are made in the early pring and revi ed in the autumn of each year. everal a pects of the international tran mi ion mechani m were inve tigated in Filatov, Hickman, and Klein (1983), which pre ents imulation of the effect of monetary, fi cal, and energy hock over a long-term (7-year) horizon. An analytical decompo ition of international income multiplier from the arne imulation wa ub equendy pre~ented in Hickman and Filatov (1983). The LINK group participated in ajoint tudy of the impact of energy hock and policy re pon e, ponored by the Energy Modeling Forum at tan ford Univer ity, involving comparative imulation u ing 14 different model (Bollino, Pauly, and Peter en 1983; Pauly and Hooper 1984). 7


Unemployment pro pects in the OECD area were the focu of alternative LINK cenario in a paper by Pauly (1984). Wage and price re pon e to demand (fi cal) and upply (oil) hock in ix of the LINK model (Canada, France, Germany, Japan, the United Kingdom, and the United State) were analyed by Hickman and Klein (1984). In another application, Klein (forthcoming 1985) u ed key parameter from LINK simulations to evaluate the propo ition that continuing recovery in the OECD economie will enable the debtor countrie of the Third World both to manage their debt and to continue to make economic progre s.

Expansion of the system With the help of United Nation taff, model for developing countrie were introduced into the LINK y tern at an early tage. Included were area model for Africa, A ia, Latin America, and the Middle East. The e model emphasized trade, the dome tic accumulation of fixed capital, and internal spending. The UN staff al 0 provided model for the centrally planned economie . From Wharton Econometric , the project drew on the model of the Soviet Union that had been developed independently of the LINK effort. A model of China wa developed specifically for LINK by Lawrence J. Lau of Stanford Univer ity, who was an early participant in the entire project. Over the year , more countrie were added to the y tern. Now, virtually every OECD country i participating directly (with the exception of Iceland, Portugal, Turkey, and Yugo lavia). To thi expanded grouping of indu trial countrie , we are now able to include model for individual developing countrie (with orne small re idual area groupings), which together with OECD and CPE model , make up a ytern of 72 eparate component models. The e models are all interrelated through a commodity-specific trade matrix that i fully 72 X 72. Thi unusual tatitical con truct for trade has been prepared by the UN taff. At the earlier tage, the four area model of the developing countrie were related to the rest of the ystem by only one row and column pair in the trade matrix. That limitation ha now been broken, and the interactive relationship among trade and production flows cover 72 entitie at a completely bilateral level. It is, under tandably, a mammoth job of information management and computing. The system now ha about 16,000 imultaneous equation. The inclusion in LINK of developing country models, with prominent display, has long been a di 8

tant goal, but with the emergence of specific problem in the developing countrie , their extended treatment became a priority of the fir t order. It had long been expected that the developed countrie would have a more mode t growth pro pect in the 1970 and in the year to come in the 1980 , than previou ly, e pecially than the buoyant year 1950-1973. Thi more mode t growth indicate trouble for the developing countrie , who e own growth pro pects depend heavily on performance in the developed countrie . In addition, the appearance of the LDC (Le Developed Countries) debt problem, in bold relief after the ummer of 1982, made their explicit tudy mandatory, in order to a e the chance of their being able to manage their economie without default or other crisi precipitating events. There i significant feedback between developed and developing countries, and thi feedback is one of the objective of inve tigation in the newly enlarged y tern. In order to facilitate the addition of some 35 new model for developing countrie on fairly hort notice, imilar (but not identical) y tern were built at LINK Central (Univer ity of Penn ylvania) using a great deal of in ight and guidance from Third World cholar who have participated in LINK meetings for everal year . The project al 0 received much help from taff economists at the UN and the Asian Development Bank. Shinichi Ichimura of Kyoto Univer ity al 0 contributed greatly to thi development, on the ba i of hi stu die of a sublinkage system in the Pacific Ba in. Gradually, re pon ibility for models will shift from LINK Central to economists in the member countries. We shall oon have fre h model maintained in a few pecific countrie a part of the y tern: Chile, India, Nigeria, Paki tan, the Philippine, South Korea, Taiwan, and Venezuela. The e models come from ongoing econometric practice in the particular countrie ; their work will continue indefinitely into the future. It i worthy of note that two model for centrally planned economie will also be maintained on ite, namely, Poland (University of Lodz) and Hungary (International Market Research In titute). It is hoped that a model of China will be built dome tically for u e in LINK. Related to the work on model building for developing countrie , we are returning to an older theme--the integration of commodity models with the country model in the sy tern. Thi will enable us to tudy the pricing and the export earnings of primary producing countries, many of which are LDCs. Some year ago, LINK contained a related system VOLUME

(COMLINK) which e timated and imulated commodity model con i tently in the LINK context (Adam 1978). Thi work ha been revived and i now ready for integration into the ystem. It now ha about 15 major commodity model and it will be expanded to cover more than 25 markets.

Exchange rates The LINK model , except for a few regional grouping for re idual ca e , are cast in dome tic currency ~nits. We are actively modeling exchange ra~e equauon for the major indu trial countrie (ee Hickman 1983 and Pauly and Peter en, in pre ). We relate movements in the exchange rate (again t the V.S. dollar) to intere t rate differential, inflation differential, growth pro pect , current account balance and foreign currency re erve holding. Mo t theorie' follow elaborate chain of reasoning and end up with equation like tho e being u ed at pre ent. We are al 0 continuing work on the e timation of capital flow. We eek further enlightenment on exchange rate value through their relation hip with capital flow ,a that eem to be the main factor that holds ~e V.S. dollar at uch a high rate at the pre ent time-March 1985. With regard to exchange rate of the developing economie , we are mainly relating th.em to the currencie of individual developed countne or group of them. At the 1982 LINK meeting in Germany, we devoted one day, at the office of the Bunde bank in Frankfort, to theoretical and empirical tudie, by LINK participants and other re earcher , of capital flow and exchange rate determination (Klein and Krelle 1983). A in all LINK re earch, we expect the e tentative fir t step to re ult eventually in a olid long-lived LINK ub ystem. ' Additional tudie of exchange rate determination, but not from the tandpoint of capital flow , were reported to another joint meeting in 1983 at the Bank of japan in Tokyo, along with imilar tudies from other multinational models. This et of studie will be published in a forthcoming i ue of the European Economic Review. Endogenou treatment of exchange rate will continue to be a lively area of study within LINK.

Computational advances At the time of the freeing-up of exchange rate in the floating system, a problem was po ed in LINK re earch as follows: JUNE 1985

For fixed paritie • trade balance are endogeneou • exchange rate are exogeneou ; for equilibrium rate under floating paritie. trade balance (or current accounts) are et at exogeneou target level • exchange rate are e timated as endogeneou in trument variable.

Thi make exchange rate determination a problem of the well-known target-and-in trument formulation for economic policy formation in the manner pioneered by jan Tinbergen, the Nobel Prizewinning economi t from the Netherland. Thi attractive way of looking at the problem intrigued Keith john on of the LINK taffin 1974, and he tudied the matter in hi di ertation re earch. To olve thi problem, he modified the LINK ystem into a impler model, with an identical specification for each country. He olved the large- cale computational problem with the reduced y tern. Chri tian Peter en and Peter Pauly of the pre ent LINK taff reached a mile tone in their 1984 re earch by ucce fully programming the olution to thi problem in a much expanded LINK y tem-lO year later than john on' re earch. Their olution i very general and can be u ed for unequal number of targets and in truments where appropriate (Pauly and Peter en, in pre ). They were able to program the ca e of equality between targets and in truments for implementation of Ronald McKinnon' (1984) propo al for monetary tabilization by tabilizing exchange rates at purcha ing power parity level . The e re ults were pre ented at a pecial LINK e ion copon ored by the Federal Re erve Bank of San Franci co on Augu t 26, 1984, and will be reported in the proceedings of the conference now being edited (Hickman, forthcoming 1985). F~rther advance in computer method are entirely po Ible. The next tep i to con ider the .. upercomputer," which i a hardware configuration that will deal with the problems inherent in imulating large ystem, uch a the pre ent augmented LINK model. The upercomputer offer the po ibility of ignific.antly ~educing the time required for lengthy simulauon With the large LINK model for 72 countrie and regions. Since the upercomputer incorporate parallel proce sing units, the individual country model could be olved imultaneously instead of erially, a i now done, and then all sent together to a linkage proce or.

The comparative evaluation of longitudinal data The dramatic increa e in the collection of national longitudinal data in the 1960 and 1970 facilitated the development of everal field of inquiry. It al 0 lead to orne difficult-even perplexing-que tion about the role of the e data in the ocial cience and in public policy. Que tion are increa ingly a ked of the e inve tments by the re earch community a it come to under tand their limits a well a their trength , and a the u picion grow that everal of the mo t enduring of the e tudie may no longer yield rich cientific or policy relevant information. The que tion a ked include, for example, whether the nece ary analytical tool exi t for judging the equivalence of the mea ure of everal data erie that appear to be relevant to a given topic; whether guideline can be developed for di tingui hing cientifically u eful replication from unnece arily redundant mea urement; and whether criteria exi t by which cholar who u e the e data and the funder \ ho upport their collection and analy i may better decide \ hich erie to initiate, maintain, or terminate. At pre ent, the choice of u er and inve tor in the e data are not informed by an under tanding of the comparative advantage and weakne e of alternative data ets or de ign , the mechani m of governing the e relatively large inve tments in re earch, or the condition under which the e data will net the large t benefit to the development of cience or public poli y. A Council working group on comparative evaluation of longitudinal data recently held two work hop with the purpo e of initiating y tematic attention to the e and related que tion . The working group held the fir t of the e workhop, "Back Tran lation: From De ign to Analy i ," in the Council' office on February 8-9, 1985. Thi work hop ought to under tand the implication of recent advance in method for the de ign and collection of longitudinal data. Over the la t everal year , a variety of method ha been invented to cope with mi ing data, electivity bia , truncated or cen ored data, and other problem .

What make the e people pecial i that there ha b en in their live orne triggering or cry tallizing event or cri i which timulated a qualitative leap in con olidation or engagement-what i knm n a "commitment." Thi wa evident both from the ca e hi torie pre ented at the meeting and from work in other field of giftedne . The ca e hi torie reported in pre ented paper were of two type: (1) adult individual who howed moral extraordinarine ,and who e live and moral career could be traced through their recollection of the cry tallizing or triggering events and cri e ; and (2) younger people who had not hown extraordinarin ,but who e way of resolving "ordinary" cri e and reflection upon ignificant even might be a clu to the developmental proce e of extraordinarine . The emergent con en u of participants wa , in fact, that a proper and exten ive exploration of the ca e tudy method wa needed, perhap drawing on the e perti e of other who have worked with imilar methodologie. uch a methodological explorationperhap in the form of a ub equent conferencewould make po ible a proper examination of moral giftedne and would al 0 make a ub tantive contribution to p ychological methodology and conceptualization in its own right. uch work could be extended into cognitive cience and modify an approach which ha hitherto been exploited mainly within p ychodynamic and other ego-related field .

One e ion di cu ed que tion of what con titute giftedne at different age. For example: (1) How early can giftedne in the vi ual arLS be detected?

(b) Do young children who are divergent (i.e., original and innovative in their drawing) become older children who also di play the e characteri ti in their works? Or do divergence at an early age give way to exce ively careful, technically killed, afe work during the late elementary year ? (c) Wa the divergent adole cent al 0 diverg nt in the prechool year?

Planning for the 1990 Census The Council' Committee on Re earch on the 1980 Cen us pon ored a work hop on the 1990 Cen u on February 1, 1985. The work hop wa held at the National Academy of cience; it wa upported by a pecial grant provided by the Alfred P. loan Foundation. The Bureau of the Cen u ha for everal year pon ored hearing , work hop , and field te ts in preparation for the 1990 Cen u . The pre ent workhop wa held in order to provide an opportunity for cholars who are preparing monograph on the 1980 Cen u to convey to the Bureau of the Cen u the les ons they have learned from their direct experience in the analy i of the 1980 data. A is alway the ca e, researcher learn that there are ome type of analy i that cannot be carried out becau e a que tion was asked in a certain way or wa not a ked at all, or the data were coded in a way that limits their u e. In hi introductory remark, William P. Butz, the a ociate director for demographic field at the Bureau of the Cen u , noted that thi was a propitiou time to hold the work hop, ince planning for the 1990 Cen u was at the halfway point. He noted that he would listen to all ugge tion , with caution, ince 16

the Bureau ha many clients eeking to introduce que tion of relevance to them and there are time and budgetary re traints upon the number of que tion that can be a ked. But he urged the participants to ignore the e con traints in their di cu ion. In repon e to a que tion, Peter Bounpane, the a i tant director for demographic cen u e, ugge ted that the real co t of additional que tion might not be money but a lower rate of return, and a con equent undercount. Prior to the work hop, each of the participants who i writing a 1980 Cen u monograph ubmitted one or more memoranda detailing hi or her experience with the data and the Ie on that might be learned from it; 12 memoranda were received and di tributed in advance. The range of ugge tion made wa extremely wide, and only a few example can be given here. Many ugge tion concerned collecting a more complete ethnic de cription of the population, including obtaining uch information a the birthplace of parents and the pecification of Engli h, Iri h, cotti h, and WeI h. Particular attention wa given to the definition of Hi panic ethnic identity. Other participants ought to have the Cen u reflect more accurately the change in family compo ition that have taken place in recent decade . For example, it wa urged that a di tinction be made between "natural" children and " tep and adopted" children, and that the tandard categorie of ingle, married, widowed, eparated, or divorced be expanded to include "living together or cohabiting."
