Pavlov and his School: the Theory of Conditioned Reflexes

Nature volume 140, pages 700701 (23 October 1937) | Download Citation



FEW physiologists can read Russian, and most of them have to depend for their knowledge of Pavlov's work on reviews and summaries published in other languages. Two comprehensive books in English on conditioned reflexes were published in 1927 and 1928, and since then most of us have had to depend on scattered sources of information. The new book by Prof. Frolov is welcome because it gives a general review of the subject up to the time of Pavlov's death. We are indebted to C. P. Dutt for the English translation.
