Alexander Luria was one of the most influential psychologists of the 20th century. His official autobiography was written as a citizen of the Soviet Union, and while it provides a compelling story of his lifelong devotion to developing a comprehensive theory of the biological and cultural foundations of human nature, it is conspicuous for the absence of information about the social context of his work and his personal struggles to be a decent person in indecent times. The current qdialogic autobiographyq brings the vitality of Luria's ideas back to life. Michael Cole and Karl Levitin, both of whom knew Luria well and have written about his life and work, have written a carefully researched introduction and epilogue to the original autobiography. They provide readers, for the first time, with information about the social and personal contexts of Luria's remarkable achievements. Their account is supplemented by a DVD with reminiscences of leading psychologists from around the world who knew and worked with Luria. At last, Luria's life and science are brought together in a single volume. The book will appeal to psychologists, neuropsychologists, and other scientists interested in Luria's life achievements.Another group of children failed to respond when a red light, the positive stimulus , followed a green light, the negative stimulus. ... thechildren continued to use their right hand torespondto any stimulus even whentheleft handwas specified by thepreliminary instructions. ... when a single light came on, we found thatsaying the wordsa€œWhen the red light appearsa€ prompted them totryand find the light, while theanbsp;...
