'Jaswal S, 1992: Degree of Discrimination Between Normals, Mongols (Down Syndrome) and Non-Mongol Mental Retardates with Respects to Dermal Configurations. Anthropologie (Brno) 30, 3: 285-287'.
THe present study presents the degree of deviations in selected dermatoglyphic characters (on fingers, palms and soles) of retardates and mongols (Down Syndrome) from normals through separation indices. The values of separation indices between retardates and normals for various dermatoglyphic characters precisely indicate that the discrimination between these two groups on the basis of their dermatoglyphic characters is much less effective than between mongols and normals.
