Example text

A t present there is no way of using instrumentation where the individual or group has to be observed for long periods of time, as, for example, in sleep, reaction of crowds to emotionproducing stimuli, and the influence of children upon each other. —In general, in most psychological investigations of the laboratory type, where accuracy and control in observation are demanded, the experimenter makes his observations upon one, or, at best, a few subjects. In addition to the instruments necessary to make observations, we must control certain aspects of the subject's environment—depending upon the nature of the experiment, we place him in a dark room, or in a well-lighted room; we leave him in the room alone, or make him react before other people.

Few, if any, experiments have succeeded in bringing the sub-vocal mechanisms under control. Indeed, many of the glandular responses have, from a psychological standpoint, not been touched—for example, the possible conditioned reflexes which we may find in the thyroid, adrenal, and sex glands, and in the secretions of the kidneys.
