First Psychology Lab

The world's first psychology lab was founded by Wilhelm Wundt at the University of Leipzig in Germany. This event is viewed as what catapulted psychology into the world of academia, taking it from a theoretical discipline to a scientific one. The creation of the lab truly turned psychology into its own discipline, rather than just a mixture of biology and philosophy. Wundt did research primarily on structuralism, which breaks down cognitions into their components and studying those basics elements. Image source:
