Somatic, Psychiatric, and Psychological Aspects

  • Hans Göppinger


The medical assessment of the O- and the G-subjects was not aimed at an extensive diagnostic evaluation — i.e., one satisfying clinical criteria — as the Tübingen Institute lacked the necessary equipment. No relevant findings could be expected from a clinical-neurological examination alone without corresponding additional diagnostic procedures. Thus, only externally visible abnormal findings (such as physical impairments, deformities, anomalies of growth, and scars and tattoos) were noted. Electroencephalograms and echoencephalograms were recorded for most of the O- and the G-subjects. The latter examination, however, was soon discontinued, as the evaluation of the findings gave no new insights. On the other hand, chromosome patterns were examined after a certain time for 74 O- and 103 G-subjects.
