Toward the end of the 19th century and in the first three decades of the 20th century, Germany was the greatest single center of psychological research and thought. In 1879 Wilhelm Wundt established in Leipzig the first psychological laboratory. The experimental studies were conducted in several academic centers by a growing number of psychologists, among them Ebbinghaus, Külpe, Neumann, and Ach. Several schools in psychology have their roots in Germany, among them structuralism, phenomenology, Gestalt, and personalistic and humanistic psychology.
