5 Must-Reads About the History of PsychologyEvery month I write several articles for this blog about the history of psychology. I do this in part because, in order to know where we’re going, we must know where we’ve been.

While researching my posts, I come across many fascinating articles about psychology. Here are five diverse pieces I think you’ll find especially interesting.

  2. Klonopin 2mg/Rivotril (Clonazepam) is used for the short-term relief of the symptoms of anxiety. It is used for certain types of seizures, specifically petit mal seizures, akinetic seizures, and myoclonus, as well as Lennox-Gastaut syndrome. For these seizure disorders, clonazepam may use alone or together with other medications. Like all benzodiazepines, clonazepam can cause physical dependence.
