Nice to see you've started an article. I've put in the subpages template for you and filled in the metadata. Someone will need to check the workgroups however. Also, I removed your signature from the bottom of the article as we do not sign articles. --Chris Key 21:00, 30 July 2010 (UTC)

Thanks, Chris. Since this is my first contribution, I am not clear about what exactly to do after the initial creation. Any specific information you can offer is (and will be) greatly appreciated! --Wally L. Larsen 21:09, 30 July 2010 (UTC)
This is a good start, Wally! What is missing now is context and details: We have a stub on intelligence (biology), with which this one should be integrated. Also, we will have to clarify that the controversial nature is mainly due to the decade-long dominance of the IQ and to gaps in our understanding of the brain and its evolution. In this respect, it is important to link Gardner's eight forms of intelligence to current views on the brain structures involved in each of them. I have quite a few references on that (especially the musical one and the methods used) and will have to dig some suitable ones out. The Bibliography subpages of intelligence (biology), music perception, neuroimaging and brain morphometry may be a good starting point. The importance for education is already alluded to but should receive more detailed coverage, since it is the angle from which the theory is most commonly discussed.

Wally, I did some editing of the article. Please review to see if you think they helped. Anthony.Sebastian 02:55, 7 November 2010 (UTC)
