Inglis, James.



256 pages




Inglis (then psychology, Temple U.) applies scientific principles of psychology to the field of abnormality in selected studies that involve measuring and manipulating disordered behavior. He first looks at the conventional observation and description of thought disorder and memory disorder. Then he considers experimenting and altering abnormality through neurosurgery, sensory deprivation, reinforcement, psychotherapy, and other methods, many of which are probably illegal today.
