Wilhelm Wundt

1832-1920

 

Considered the father of modern psychology, Wilhelm Wundt studied medicine in his native Germany before his interests began to lean more toward physiology and psychology.  His main areas of research included sensory processes.  In 1875, he moved to Leipzig where he developed the first psychological laboratory and spent the next 46 years training psychologists and writing more than 54,000 written pages of research and theory.
