BRAIN MECHANISMS AND INTELLIGENCE, A QUANTITATIVE STUDY OF INJURIES TO THE BRAIN.
LASHLEY, K.S.
SEVERAL EXPERIMENTS WITH RATS INVOLVING THE INFLUENCE OF CEREBRAL DESTRUCTION ON LEARNING ABILITY ARE DESCRIBED. THE TWO MAJOR EXPERIMENTS STUDY THE RETENTION OF THE MAZE HABIT AFTER CEREBRAL LESIONS AND THE INFLUENCE OF CEREBRAL LESIONS ON THE CAPACITY TO LEARN (INITIAL FORMATION OF HABITS). THEORECTICAL ANALYSIS OF THE LEARNING (BEHAVIOR) PROBLEMS DRAWN FROM THE EXPERIMENTS INCLUDES THE INFLUENCE OF BRAIN INJURIES UPON RETENTIVENESS, THE CAUSE OF LEARNING IN DETERIORATED CASES, THE RELATION OF REDUCED LEARNING ABILITY TO SENSORY AND MOTOR DEFECTS, AND THE NATURE OF THE DETERIORATION FOLLOWING CEREBRAL LENSIONS. A COMPARISON OF THE RAT WITH OTHER ANIMALS AND MAN IS GIVEN, AND THEORIES OF NEURAL MECHANISMS IN ADAPTIVE BEHAVIOR ARE CONSIDERED. ALSO INCLUDED ARE A GENERAL REVIEW OF PSYCHOLOGICAL AND NEUROLOGICAL THEORIES OF INTELLIGENCE AND GENERAL METHODS IN ANIMAL STUDIES OF INTELLIGENCE. A BIBLIOGRAPHY LISTS 137 ITEMS FROM 1872 TO 1928. DIAGRAMS OF BRAIN LESIONS ARE INCLUDED. THIS DOCUMENT WAS PUBLISHED BY DOVER PUBLICATIONS, INC., 180 VARICK STREET, NEW YORK, NEW YORK 10014, FOR $1.75. (CG)
