Shepherd Ivory Franz: His contributions to neuropsychology and rehabilitation

  title={Shepherd Ivory Franz: His contributions to neuropsychology and rehabilitation},
  author={Victor A. Colotla and Paul Bach-y-Rita},
  journal={Cognitive, Affective, \& Behavioral Neuroscience},
Shepherd I. Franz was an important figure in psychology of the last century, and historians of psychology have given recognition to much of his work. However, his experimental work with animals and his pioneer investigations in experimental and clinical neuropsychology have been largely ignored. This article reviews his conceptual, assessment, and treatment contributions, including (1) his pioneering work on the use of learned behavior as a baseline for the study of cerebral ablations, (2) his… Expand
Brain Damage: Neuropsychological Rehabilitation
One of the most significant changes in neuropsychological rehabilitation over the last two decades has been its evolution from a field focused almost exclusively on cognitive and memory dysfunctionExpand
The Brain and Its Maps: An Illustrative History
This chapter is organized in such a way as to highlight the shifts in preferred metaphors guiding different eras of human brain research–from inert lump of flesh, to a container for mental and spiritual functions, to mechanistic pump, to an information processing computer , to a hyper-connected and mutable network.

Brain plasticity and upper limb function after stroke : some implications for rehabilitation.
Neuroimaging and neurophysiology techniques were used to study some aspects of cortical sensory and motor system reorganisation in patients in the chronic phase after stroke. Using Diffusion TensorExpand
Priority Disputes in the History of Psychology with Special Attention to the Franz–Kalischer Dispute About Who First Combined Animal Training with Brain Extirpation to Investigate Brain Functions
Shepherd Ivory Franz (American) and Otto Kalischer (German) each claimed to have been the first to combine animal training and brain extirpation to study brain function, a methodological approachExpand
Modern Late Neurologic Rehabilitation: Neuroscience and Motivating Functional Rehabilitation
The potential for late recovery of function following brain damage exists, but rehabilitation programs are usually designed for the early stages of recovery. Neuroscience issues related to late brainExpand


Cerebral reorganization of function after brain damage
This book integrates neuroscience research on neuroplasticity with clinical investigation of reorganization of function after brain injury, especially from the perspective of eventually translatingExpand
Lashley's shift from bacteriology to neuropsychology, 1910-1917, and the influence of Jennings, Watson, and Franz.
  • D. Bruce

From 1910 to 1917, Karl S. Lashley's research moved from bacteriology to neuropsychology through intermediate stages of zoology, comparative psychology, and the psychology of learning. This shift isExpand
In some cases it has been found practicable to stimulate the cerebral cortex in man after the fashion of the physiologic experiments and thus to map out the muscular reactions represented in the cortex. Expand
On cerebral motor control: The recovery from experimentally produced hemiplegia.
It has long been believed that if improvement in motor ability does not occur in man within a period of two years following the cerebral accident the paralysis is permanent, but the series of cases show that this is not true, because even in cases of paralysis of eight or more years' duration, considerable improvement follows suitable remedial measures of the nature of exercise.

A History of Psychology in Autobiography
AbstractTHE thirteen American, English, German and Italian psychologists whose autobiographies appear in this volume were selected in 1928, like those in the two previous volumes of the series, by aExpand
Evaluation of stroke rehabilitation by randomized controlled studies: a review
Rec rehabilitation, whether administered by specialists or amateur caregivers purpose‐trained by specialists, proved equally effective for aphasia, constitute a valuable basis for the development and evaluation of modern rehabilitation programs for stroke patients. Expand
It is well known that in the hemiplegias due to cerebral lesions, there are usually early recoveries of function for different segments when the other acute symptoms of hemorrhage, or embolism, orExpand

Constraint-Induced Movement Therapy: a new family of techniques with broad application to physical rehabilitation--a clinical review.
The CI Therapy approach has been used successfully to date for the upper limb of patients with Chronic and subacute CVA and patients with chronic traumatic brain injury and for the lower limb of Patients with CVA, incomplete spinal cord injury, and fractured hip and has recently been extended to focal hand dystonia of musicians and possibly phantom limb pain.
