Summary
(From the 1929 text) The experiments reported in the following pages are a continuation of a program for an analysis of the neural mechanisms which play a part in learning. /// Results are interpreted in relation to current theories and have perhaps made wider applications than their limited character justifies. The experiments constitute the first attempt to apply quantitative methods to both neurological and behavior data. They show that the method is capable of giving consistent results relevant to the fundamental problems of the nature and mechanisms and learning and problem-solving. /// The experiments in the following study ... have developed out of the necessity of seeking explanations for facts which have evolved as the work progressed. It was undertaken primarily to discover whether or not the quantitative relationship previously found between cerebral injury and the retention of the habit of brightness discrimination would hold for a habit of a different type. It gave the result that relearning of the maze after cerebral insult might require many times more practice than initial learning. This led to the series of experiments dealing with the influence of cerebral lesions upon the initial formation of a variety of habits, which are reported as logically first.
