L'Année psychologique

Nature volume 131, page 604 (29 April 1933) | Download Citation



As usual, this yearly publication contains some very important original essays and a mass of reviews (1,670 in number) of the current literature of psychology. It will suffice to mention some of the subjects treated: chromatic sensation (Piéron), mental work without movements (Foucault), nervous rhythms and relaxation oscillations (Fessard), complexity of consecutive visual impressions (Durey), appreciation of time in the white mouse (Ruch). At the end of this work there is an appeal by Prof. Spearman, to the effect that psychologists should agree once for all about the conditions and interpretations of certain experiments, on the lines followed by physicists.
