Abstract : The paper presents the case history of a research project aimed at defining the two personality traits (behavioral predispositions) of impulsiveness and anxiety. It summarizes the overall design and rationale of the research project, with some selected results obtained to date, and briefly describes research in progress. It also presents some thoughts about a neuropsychological model; the model is tentative and will continue to evolve as new data are obtained. (Author)
