Dermatoglyphic test is an integration of neuro science genetics psychology behavior
science and is based on formation of ridges present on the fingerprint. Through research geneticist (from ancient Greek derma = skin, glyph = carving) is the DMIT scientific study of fingerprints. The term was coined by Dr. Harold Cummins, the father of American fingerprint analysis. The process of fingerprint identification had been used for several hundred years now.
History of DMIT
Dermatoglyphics is the study of dermal ridges on palms and soles. Since 1823 scientists have discovered that finger prints and innate intelligence are related. Through many medical researches it is found that finger prints are formed during the 13th to 19th prenatal week. Study of the finger prints and can be traced back to 1892 by Sir Francis Galton, a cousin of Charles Darwin, published his non classical work on finger prints. He conducted extensive research into the significance of skin ridge patterns not only to demonstrate their permanence and consequently their use as a means of identification, but also to demonstrate the hereditary significance of fingerprints and to show the biological variations of different fingerprint patterns amongst different racial groups. He collected vast numbers of fingerprints from all types of people, noting the variations of pattern types amongst different races and established the relative frequency. However, the main breakthrough in establishing the significance of the dermatoglyphic analysis of the hand came with the publication of the results of the research of Harold Cummins and Charles Midlo in their seminal work 'Fingerprints Palms and Soles' in 1943. Cummins and Charles Midlo were professors of Microscopic Anatomy at Tulane University in the United States, and it was they who in fact coined the term 'dermatoglyphics' in 1926 (derma = skin, glyph = carving). The main thrust of their research was into Down's syndrome and the characteristic hand formations it produces. They showed that the hand contained significant dermatoglyphic configurations that
would assist the identification of mongolism in the new-born child and thus they set the stage for much of the later dermatoglyphic research work.
Brain and Fingerprints
Fingerprints have been studied for centuries. A strong correlation between brain and finger prints was noticed by American Doctors. They discovered that babies who had no brain, an Anenchephalous child, did not have finger prints either. During pregnancy if mother suffers Folic Acid deficiency such a child is born. After various Medical researches it was found that the human fingerprints form from 13th week to 21st week of pregnancy. And the finger prints and human neocortex
developed simultaneously and a scientific relationship between fingerprints and brain function has been established. Finger prints are our genetic trades exposed outside of our body. Through the study of finger prints we can know about functioning of brain of

Multiple Intelligence Theory
Our intelligence or ability to understand the world around us is complex. Some people are better at understanding somethings, than others. For some of us it is relatively easy to understand mathematical puzzles but it is immensely difficult for some to compose a song. For others public speaking might be easy but playing football is difficult. After having many researches it has been proved that instead of having one intelligence we have several different intelligence. The theory of multiple intelligence was proposed by Howard Gardner in 1983 to more accurately define the concept of intelligence and to address the question whether methods which claim to measure intelligence are truly scientific. In his conception, a child who masters multiplication easily is not necessarily more intelligent overall than a child who struggles to do so. The second child may be stronger in another kind of intelligence.
