The History of Psychology
Wave One:
Wilhelm Wundt created the first psychological laboratory where he discovered the basic structure of thought and brain.

Talcott Parson was one of the most sociologist . He invented the AGIL scheme, which was part of a larger project in his book called "The Structure of Social Action".
The biggest American supporters in functionalism is William James and John Dewey. The article written in 1896 called "The Reflex Arc Concept in Psychology" supports functionalism.
Wave Three:
1890 - 1940
1896 - 1909

Perls, Hefferline, and Goodman all made contributions to the Gestalt research by writing "Gestalt Therapy : Excitement and Growth in the Human Personality."
Wave Four

Wave Five:
1913 - 1985
Psychoanalysis was founded by Sigmund Freud, an Austrian neurologist, in 1896. Psychoanalysis aims to reveal repressed memories, or to make the unconscious, conscious. Psychoanalysis was mainly used as a treatment for depression.
Clark Hull believed that psychology could be converted into mathematical equations. He later published "Principles of Behavior", stating that stimulus-response is relied upon the kind and quantity of reinforcement.

Studies on Hysteria

In 1913, John B. Watson founded the Behavior School of Psychology. He also published an article called "Psychology as the Behaviorist views it".
