In 1834, he was appointed professor of physics at Leipzig. he suffered a nervous breakdown in 1839, brought about by an eye disorder developed during his experiments and resigned his position, spending the next three years in recovery and developing his interest in philosophy and psychology. Returning to Leipzig, he developed his experimental psychology which became known as psychophysics, while continuing to teach until his death in 1887. In 1860, he published Elements of Psychophysics, which established his fame as a psychologist. He is responsible for the equation characterizing psychophysical relations (S=k log R) and for introducing the median into formal data analysis. He was admired by Freud and William James.
