The history of DMIT is deep rooted and contributed by various eminent personalities, like, Dr. Henry Faulds stated the theory of finger RC (Ridge Count) and it’s ability to distinguish the study method of inborn intelligences, In the year of 1943, Dr. Harold Cummins stated the theory of Pattern Intensity rate measuring, RC value, 3 delta areas value, potency value, different finger patterns with its different position. American developmental psychologist Dr. Howard Gardner developed a theory of Multiple Intelligence ( MI ). A few years ago a rather remarkable commercial spin off from Gardner Theory became available a product named DMIT which stands for Dermatoglyphics Multiple Intelligence Test.At St Luke's hospital in New York, and Germany claims to be able to diagnose schizophrenia and leukaemia and can pinpoint many congenital abnormalities with a 90% accuracy. There are 5155, scientific document of dermatoglyphics on US national library of medicine, National Institute of Helath. Nowadays U.S., Australia, Newzeland, Japan, China, Taiwan and India apply dermatoglyphics to educational fields, expecting to improve teaching qualities and raising learning efficiency by knowing network of intelligences, learning abilities and styles..


Thumb prints were found on clay seals

  • 1684 Dr. Nehemiah Grew presented Finger Prints, Palms and Soles An Introduction To Dermatoglyphics to the Royal Society.
  • 1686 Dr. Marcello Malpighi noted in his treatise; ridges, spirals and loops in fingerprints
  • 1788 J.C.Mayer was the first to write out basic tenets of fingerprint analysis and theorized that fingerprints were unique.
  • 1823 Dr. Jan Purkinje classified the papillary lines on the fingertips into nine types: arch, tented arch, ulna loop, radial loop, peacock’s eye/compound, spiral whorl, elliptical whorl, circular whorl, and double loop/composite.Joannes Evangelista Purkinji found that the patterns on one’s finger tips and the ridges and lines on one’s prints begin to form at around the thirteenth week in the womb.
  • 1893 Dr. Francis Galton published his book, “Fingerprints”, establishing the individuality and permanence of fingerprints. The book included the first classification system for fingerprints: Arch, Loop and Whorl.
  • 1926 Dr. Harold Cummins &Dr. Charles Midlo coined the term “Dermatoglyphics”. They showed that the hand contained significant Dermatoglyphics configurations that would assist the identification of mongolism in the new-born child.
  • 1936 Dr. Harold Cummins &Dr. Charles Midlo also researched the embryo-genesis of skin ridge patterns and established that the fingerprint patterns actually develop in the womb and are fully formed by the fourth foetal month.
  • 1968 Sarah Holt, whose own work 'The Genetics of Dermal Ridges' published in 1968, summarizes her research in of Dermatoglyphics patterns of both the fingers and the palm in various peoples, both normal and congenitally afflicted.
  • 1969 John J. Mulvihill, MD and David W. Smith, MD published The Genesis of Dermatoglyphics that provides the most up to date version of how fingerprints form.
  • 1976 Schaumann and Alter's 'Dermatoglyphics in Medical Disorders' published.Significant investigations have also been carried out into the dermatoglyphics indicators of congenital heart disease, leukaemia, cancer, rubella embryopathy, Alzheimer's disease, schizophrenia etc.Dermatoglyphics research being directed into genetic research and the diagnosis of chromosomal defects.
  • 1980 China carry out researching work of human potential, intelligence and talents in dermatoglyphics and human genome perspective.
  • 1981 Roger Wolcott Sperry won Nobel Prize in Physiology and Medicine for his work with split-brain research.
  • 1982 Bengt Ingemar Bergstrom, John Robert Vane and Sune K. Bergstrom awarded Nobel Prize for the discovery of prostaglandins
  • 1985 Dr. Chen Yi MouPhd. OfHavard University research Dermatoglyphics based on Multiple Intelligence theory of Dr. Howard Gardner. First apply dermatoglyphics to educational fields and brain physiology.
  • 1986 Nobel Prize in physiology was awarded to Dr. Rita Levi-Montalcini &Dr. Stanley Cohen for discovering the correlation between NGF (Nerve Growth Factor) and EGF (Epidermal Growth Factor).
  • 2000 Arvid Carlsson, Paul Greengard and Eric Kandel share the Nobel Prize for their discoveries concerning signal transduction in the nervous system.
  • 2000 Dr Stowens, Chief of Pathology at St Luke's hospital in New York, claims to be able to diagnose schizophrenia and leukaemia with up to a 90% accuracy. In Germany, Dr Alexander Rodewald reports he can pinpoint many congenital abnormalities with a 90% accuracy.
  • 2004 IBMBS- International Behavioral& Medical Biometrics Society. Over 7000 report and thesis published. Nowadays the U.S., Japan or China, Taiwan apply dermatoglyphics to educational fields, expecting to improve teaching qualities and raising learning efficiency by knowing various learning styles.
  • 2013 The start of the Human Brain Project was announced and US President Barack Obama announces the Brain Research through Advancing Innovative Neurotechnologies (BRAIN) Initiative
  • 2014 The BrainVMap, A Berylls Pharma Initiative has launched the “Dermatoglyphics MultipleIntelligence and Innate Potential Analysis” after research and development of two years to provide the solutions to kids, children, adult and families for their better Life’s Goal.
