Conditioned Reflexes: an Investigation of the Physiological Activity of the Cerebral Cortex

Abstract

FOR the first time a full account of the work which Prof. Pavlov and a devoted school of pupils and associates have been doing in Russia has appeared in English. The results of the work, though recognised to be of extreme importance by physiologists, have been known in England in only one or two of its aspects, as all the literature of the subject has been in Russian, except for some short accounts. Furthermore, although the apparatus required is apparently not very expensive, the necessity for well-constructed research rooms and space for keeping animals, together with the difficulty and the time required in getting experience, have resulted in the confinement of the use of the method to the school of its origin. It is with special interest, therefore, that one surveys this translation of a comprehensive account of the method and its results.
