Studies in Experimental Psychiatry: I.—A Case of General Inertia

  • W. Stephenson (a1)

The present paper is a forerunner of what is hoped may be many devoted to psychiatrical material by experimental psychologists of the Spearman School of Factors.

Hide All

The Studies introduced by this paper were initially under the supervision of Professor Spearman and the late Dr. J. R. Lord. They are directed and now supervised by Dr. Stephenson, the work being centred at Horton Mental Hospital, Epsom. Subsequent papers will introduce other factors and their experimental technique for work in mental hospitals, followed by an account of the results of the preliminary survey of psychotic material. See Abilities of Man, C. Spearman, F.R.S., 1927 (Macmillan); Psychologies of 1930 (Clark University Press); C. Spearman, “Maudsley Lecture,” Journ. Ment. Sci., 1929, lxxv, p. 357.
