In a series of lectures delivered in 1924, Dr. I.P. Pavlov reviewed his entire course of experiments, summarized his conclusions, and outlined his landmark psychological system. Until that time, Pavlov's investigations were known only through individual monographs, most of which had appeared in hard-to-find periodicals published in eastern Europe. This book- an expanded version of the lectures- is a full, authorized translation of the Novel Prize-winning scientist's work in experimental psychology.
