At the close of the 19th century, psychology gradually lost its character as a speculative science and the experimental method began to penetrate its investigations. It is customary to consider Wundt’s laboratory of physiological psychology, organized in 1879 in Leipzig, as the first laboratory of experimental psychology. The experimental methods of Wundt and his students also penetrated clinical psychiatry (the psychiatric clinic of Kraepelin); at the same time experimental psychology laboratories were also opened in the psychiatric clinics of Russia.
