n
1: French psychologist remembered for his studies of the intellectual development of children (1857-1911) [syn: Binet, Alfred Binet]

Britannica Concise

French psychologist. His interest in J.-M. Charcot's work on hypnosis prompted him to abandon a law career and study medicine at the Salpê triè re Hospital in Paris (1878-91). He served as director of a research laboratory at the Sorbonne 1895-1911. A major figure in the development of experimental psychology in France, he founded L'Anné e Psychologique, the first French journal on psychology, in 1895. He developed experimental techniques to measure reasoning ability; between 1905 and 1911 he and Theodore Simon developed influential scales for the measurement of intelligence of children. His works include Experimental Study of Intelligence (1903) and A Method of Measuring the Development of the Intelligence of Young Children (1915).
