I am wondering about the origin of statistics' usage in psychology. Psychology was rooted in philosophy. At that time there were no experiments and analysing the data, but I guess that there must be the very first time when someone came up with the idea to use statistics in the analysis. (and that's my question).

This paper suggests it was a psychophysics experiment by Fencher in 1860.
