Jean Martin-Charcot had what some would consider a fascination with Hysteria. His extensive work to find hysteria’s etiology, symptoms, and cure provided great contributions to Psychology. Jean Martin-Charcot began to pull away from the beliefs of the previous century. He began to attribute many behaviors and actions once thought to be driven by outside forces, to the brain. Charcot began to search for the etiology of Hysteria. He sought to find it in the physical brain, and later the mind. Jean Martin-Charcot focused on the notion that Hysteria was not a disorder of the whole brain but of a specific region. He was an advocate of the localization theory. Which proposed that different parts of the brain are responsible for specific functions.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
