Hebb spent most of his academic career at McGill University in Montreal, where he became an influential theorist concerned with the relation between the brain and behavior. His most important book, The Organization of Behavior (1949), was influential in the development of connectionism. Hebb took a biological approach to psychology and became one of the first brain theorists of modern times. He combined behavioral and neurophysiological approaches to psychology. His A Textbook of Psychology promoted his psychobiological position and was eventually translated into 11 languages.
