History of the departmentEdit

The psychological laboratory of Tohoku Imperial University was founded in 1922 (Maruyama 1999) with Tanenari Chiba (1884 -1972) as its first professor. He had studied under Wundt at Leipzig from 1921 to 1922 and modelled the laboratory on the German one. The main focus of study was consciousness.

Chiba had bought a large proportion of Wundt's library (some 16,000 books and papers)while on his travels and they are now housed in the University Library.
