A 2014 research story on the whereabouts of psychology’s most famous infant continues to fascinate readers

Here you have it—our 10 most-read stories of 2015. But wait, one of the top three stories was actually posted in 2014? Turns out, the 90-year–plus saga of an unknown infant/psych research subject continued to fascinate readers.

Last year, psychology researchers Russ Powell and Nancy Digdon were satisfied with their work that may have uncovered the true identity and fate of the mysterious tot known as Little Albert, but their research ignited another topic for discussion.

“The ‘kerfuffle over Little Albert’s identity has been used to illustrate general challenges and problems in doing research,” says Nancy, who presented on those challenges at an international conference this past July.
