This is" the conclusion of Dr. Edmund Jacob- son, of the University of Chicago, ac- cording _to a recent article appearing in the Popular Science Monthly. SUNSHINE PSYCHOLOGY In his experiment, covering- a :~criod of two years, Dr. Jacobson used a "string galvanonv~ter," a specially de- signed apparatus that can measure a mihionth volt of electricity, such as the electrical effect that accompanies human thought. Thinking started the "string" in motion, and when the im- pulse was stopped the apparatus ceased to register voltage. According to D,r. Jacobson, the thought of flcx- ing the nmscle--moving the arm--in- duced the electric discharge . It is also claimed that Dr. Jacobson succeeded in measuring its value and even in throwing the image of the vibrating string on a screen, so that a subjec', could "see himself think." SUNSHINE PSYCHOLOGY Students interested in Motivity have previously contended that there was some form of "electrical content" r,p- leased in the process of Mo:ivation, emotion and behavior;but until Dr. Jacobson perfected his apparatus for recording th- voltage, there was '1o way to substantiate the supposition. The problem now of concern to re~ search workers in Motivity is: I;f voltage is produced when the biceps or pulling muscles of the arm arC: flexed with the experimenter in a pas;- sivc thinking state of nfind, how much additional current would be recocde~t if the .experimenter couldbe tested ir~ a moment of highly emotional strain?. In a physical strain known as "pant- ing for breath?" SUNSHINE PSYCHOLOGY The answer to this problem would be of considerable value to students who are analyzing the causal factorg of the behavior movement of group~ of temporarily unbalanced persons, a~ in cases where "mob violence" pre,- dominates, or where hysterical groups are stampoding from a burning buildL ing. The influence or stimuli of suc.h "electrical discharge" transmitted from one emotional group to another group t,qat is "passive," thus exciting their mental states, Motivating them into action, has been one of the outstandl- ing puzzles for 'research workers in telepathy and sociology. The influence of thought, how and why it works as it does, is also of interest to the crim- inologist. SUNSHINE PSYCHOLOGY Oriental instruction in the colylroi of emotion, stresses the value of keep-) ing a generous supply of oxygen cir& culating through the lungs. It is not enough to depend entirely upon the "subconscious" mechanism for the ac- quisition of sufficient quantities of air to rid the bloodstream of its impuri- ties . Persons with "unhealthy blood" are frequently susceptible to commun-i icabl,o diseases and disturbing mental influences, it is said. (Contmue(l on -;"age 2, Column 1) '
