Dr. Donald Hebb - Later Academics

Newly armed with a PhD from Harvard in 1936, Dr. Hebb traveled back to Montreal where he became a research fellow at McGill University with (Great Canadian Psychologist!) Wilder Penfield, who was actively investigating the neural deficits of people with brain lesions.

Two years later, Dr. Lashley invited Dr. Hebb to Florida where he studied primates for the next five years of his life. "I am accustomed to say that I learned more about human beings during that time than in any other five-year period of my life, except the first. [...] What you can’t see in your own species you may be able to see in another." After this humbling and satisfying experience, Dr. Hebb returned to McGill where he would write his legendary book, The Organization of Behavior.
