Karl Lashley worked with Donald Hebb in The Yerkes Laboratories; a lab that worked with monkeys to study various psychological concepts. If the area is not destroyed then the cortex can take equpotencialidad another part. He researched this by looking at the measurement of behavior before and after specific, carefully quantified, induced brain damage in rats. Goodheart Melba J. While there he also carried out research which he used for his master’s thesis.

When speaking of this professor, Lashley wrote, “Within a few weeks in his class I knew that I had found my life’s work”. He reached this erroneous conclusion due to imperfect lesioning methods.

Hull Edward C. Another man that Lashley influenced was Roger Sperry. Ghiselli and Brown did an experiment where they destroyed various subcortical regions of the brain in rats and tested their abilities to learn mazes compared to rats with no damage done to their brains. First, his publication, Brain Mechanisms and Intelligence: Miller Paul E.

Researchers also expanded the study of working memory, central executive, and further research on memory deficits and learning. Lawrence Erlbaum associates, Equipotencialdiad.

Retrieved from ” https: He did not have many friends. Lashley was born on June 7, in the town of Davis, West Virginia.


In this context when we use brain we are referring to the cortex. If cortical tissue is destroyed following the learning of a complex task, deterioration of performance on the task is determined more by the amount of tissue destroyed than by its location. In behaviorismthe theory of equipotentiality suggests that any two stimuli can be associated in the brain, regardless of their nature. Archived from the original on August 1, His favorite thing to ceeebral as a child was to wander through the woods and collect animals, like butterflies and mice.

After obtaining his Bachelor of Arts at West Virginia University, he was awarded a teaching fellowship at the University of Pittsburghwhere he taught biology along with biological laboratories. She was a strong advocate of schooling, and she equiipotencialidad Lashley intellectually from an early age; as a equipotencialidax he was able to read at the age of four.

He trained rats to perform specific tasks seeking a food rewardthen lesioned specific areas of the rats’ cortex, either before or after the animals received the training. Woodworth John B. In neuropsychologyequipotentiality is a neurological principle that describes a cortical mechanism, first identified by Jean Pierre Flourens and later revisited by Equipottencialidad Lashley in the s. Today we know that distribution of engrams does in fact exist, but that the distribution is not equal across all cortical areas, as Lashley assumed.

In the s brain localization theories were the popular theories on how the brain functioned. He enrolled at West Virginia Universitywhere he had originally intended to become an English major. Rquipotencialidad Carol D. John Black Johnston, a professor at West Virginia University named, taught the first zoology course that Lashley took.

By the s two separate principles had grown out of Lashley’s research: This page was last edited on 10 Octoberat McKeachie Theodore H. Since the area of the brain that was originally performing this function is damaged and unusable, the brain compensates and can code that information in other parts of the brain.

Languages Deutsch Eesti Nederlands Edit links. Warren Robert S. He grew up in a middle-class family with a reasonably comfortable life. He was on the road to a full recovery until his trip to France with his wife Clair, where he once again unexpectedly collapsed, but this time to his death on August 7, The principle of equipotentiality is the idea that the rate of learning is independent of the combination of conditioned and unconditioned stimuli that are used in classical conditioning.

Franz made multiple lesions in specific parts of the brains and after they healed, put them through the maze to see if they had deficits in finding the food.

Kazdin James H. Through Lashley’s ideas of equipotentiality and the law of mass action, he is saying that the brain is functioning as a whole unit and that over all damage to the brain effects it’s over all functioning.

The first was his mother Maggie Blanche Spencer. He was diagnosed with hemolytic anemia and put on a cortisone treatment.
