This study grew out of one previously made in the laboratories of the State University of Iowa in regard to the effect of motion pictures upon children as measured by their galvanic responses. A similar technique was applied to psychopathic individuals of the general classes, schizophrenia, manic-depressive psychosis, organic disorder, and psychoneurosis. Records were taken on an improved form of the Wechsler psychogalvanograph which permitted the recording of the total responses over a period of time. The stimulus was of the continuous type, being a motion picture lasting one-half hour. Fifty individuals, representing many variations of personality under the above rubrics, were studied.
