Roger Zimmerman. Support for those endeavors came from NIH (RO1EY00206, R01EY1951, R01EY6163, and F32EY05297), the Rush University Committee on Research, the Chicago Community Trust, and the Regenstein Foundation. The new analyses were supported by the University of Illinois at Chicago Research Board and Office of Social Science Research. Figures were prepared with SYGRAPH (SYSTAT, Inc., Evanston, IL., 1991). I also thank Dr. Karl Pribram for organizing this conference and inviting me to participate.
