Abstract.

We discuss the predictions of the Goldstone-boson-exchange constituent-quark model for the proton and neutron electric and magnetic form factors as well as the nucleon axial and induced pseudoscalar form factors. The results are calculated in a covariant framework using the point-form approach to relativistic quantum mechanics. The only input into the calculations is the nucleon wave function from the constituent-quark model. A remarkably consistent picture, with all aspects of the electroweak nucleon structure close to existing experimental data, is obtained.
