Behavior mod by Philip J Hilts( Book )

7 editions published between 1974 and 1976 in English and held by 753 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A new generation of young psychologists are convincing powerful governmental and corporate organizations that humans can be controlled and coerced into almost any pattern of behavior if given the right stimuli and reinforcement. These are the followers of B.F. Skinner, the celebrated (some believe notorious) promulgator of the theory of behaviorism, a theory which denies the existence of free will and maintains that all behavior is programmed from the environment into the human machine. Torture or treatment? It's not always clear when behavior mod is used; it is a method both of hope and horror. Psychologists who use it have an astonishing record of success in treating problems from bed-wetting to the violence of prison inmates to improving a child's IQ score. The method is based on years of laboratory work pioneered by B.F. Skinner, but behavior modification, successful as it often is, is an unusual and sometimes frightening method. It raises fundamental questions about the future of a society in which behavior can be precisely controlled, from without. Whose behavior will be changed? How? And who will do the controlling? The two faces of behavior modification, the, successful treatments and the Orwellian controls, are explored in Philip Hilts's well-documented, easily accessible study of behavior modification and how it is being used in prisons, hospitals, police departments, corporations, and perhaps most importantly in 'problem schools.'"--Jacket
Memory's ghost : the strange tale of Mr. M and the nature of memory by Philip J Hilts( Book )

4 editions published between 1995 and 1996 in English and held by 630 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1953, experimental brain surgery was performed on a young man named Henry M. It was a time when lobotomies were in fashion, and Henry's doctors believed that his epilepsy could be cured by a radical operation. Two holes were drilled into Henry's skull above his eyes and through a silver straw the hippocampus - a grayish-pink organ the size and shape of a fist - was sucked out from deep within Henry's brain." "When Henry recovered, it was clear that something had gone terribly wrong. He could talk and read and write. But when asked where he was, or who the people were at his bedside, he did not know. Nurses could speak to him and return a moment later, only to find he had no memory of them." "For decades Henry's guardians at M.I.T.'s clinical research center have shielded him, restricting access to academic researchers. Now, in Memory's Ghost, Philip J. Hilts, one of a relatively small number of people who have spent extended time with Henry, tells Henry's remarkable story. "Memory's Ghost explains how memory works and how it doesn't work, how mnemonic devices work, where memory functions are physically located in brain regions, and how the hippocampus - the part of the brain that Henry M. lost - organizes information into memory."--[book jacket]
