Gall also lacked statistical or methodologic theory that would have let him reliably measure the basic skills of interest to him.

Localization Theory PHRENOLOGY AND FACULT Y PSYCHOLOGY Not until the nineteenth century did modern neuropsychological theories on brain function begin to evolve. Thinkers formulated them, in part, from a need not only to recognize the brain as responsible for controlling behavior, but more importantly, to demonstrate precisely how the brain organizes behavior. Early in the century, Austrian anatomist Franz Gall (1758–1828), borrowing perhaps from the concept of geography (the notion of borders, at a time when people were discovering and mapping new continents), postulated that the brain consists of a number of separate organs, each responsible for a basic psychological trait such as courage, friendliness, or combativeness.

When the word is given as an automatic response, however, the patient is able to say it. The ability to say “no” exists as two separate skills: one voluntarily and one automatic. Each ability can be impaired independently of the other. Because of this, Jackson noted, behavior rarely is lost completely unless the damage to the brain is severe (Golden, Zillmer, & Spiers, 1992). Jackson suggested that, given his observations, behavior results from interactions among all the areas of the brain. Even the simplest motor movement requires the full cooperation of all the levels of the nervous system, from the peripheral nerves and the spinal cord to the cerebral hemispheres.
