Dr. Donald Hebb - Academics

When D.O. got his master's degree from McGill, he began to work on his PhD under famous behviourist Karl Lashley. He followed Lashley to Harvard to study rats raised in the dark compared to rats raised normally. It was at Harvard that the idea of neural networking began to take shape in D.O.'s mind, and while he erroneously concluded that rats can perceive without previous experience to stimuli, his PhD thesis lead him to some key ideas that would make him famous and start a new branch of psychology.
