Resume Ce rapport decrit une methode d'etudier les phenomenes musculaires qui accompagnent le travail mental. On a place les sujets dans un appareil pareil a l'ancien pilori ou “brodequins” (Fig. 1) et on a fait des photographies des changements de l'epaississement de divers groupes musculaires. On reproduit ici des resultats types faits dans une variete de conditions experimentales. De ces resultats preliminaries, on tire les conclusions provisoires suivantes: (1) que l'etendue de l'activite neuro-musculaire est une fonction de la position preparatoire, (2) que les positions de reaction “sensorielle” incluent des ormes plus diffuses d'etendue que les positions “motrices,” (3) que l'attitude de l'expectation augmente l'activite neuro-musculaire avant la stimulation, qui tend a decroitre apres, (4) que l'etendue de l'activite pendant le travail mental est tres variable meme chez le meme sujet et (5) que l'exercise dans l'apprentissage des syllables non-sens et la poursuite manuelle cause un diminution de t...
