Abstract
Results for the proton and neutron electric and magnetic form factors as well as the nucleon axial and induced pseudoscalar form factors are presented for the chiral constituent-quark model based on Goldstone-boson exchange dynamics. The calculations are performed in a covariant framework using the point-form approach to relativistic quantum mechanics. The direct predictions of the model yield a remarkably consistent picture of the electroweak nucleon structure.
