Classical Conditioning

Ivan Petrovich Pavlov was a Russian Scientist born on September 14,1849. In his early 20's Pavlov became obsessed with science and specifically, the study of physiology. Pavlov attended the Academy of Medical Surgery where he earned is doctorate and went on to begin research in field of digestion. In 1890, while serving as director of the Department of Physiology at the Institute of Experimental Medicine, Pavlov performed most of his research which served as the basis for Pavlov's laws and precursur to classical behaviorism.

Major Concepts

Pavlov's Law

Application to Humans

During the controversial baby Albert experiment of 1920, behaviorist John B. Watson and graduate student Rosalie Raynor proved empyrically that classical conditioning can be applied to humans.


Association Theory




Baby Albert

1895 -Pavlov studies physiology of digestion1906 -Pavlov published condioning laws 1913 - Behaviorism formally founded by Dr. Watson1920 - Baby Albert experiment

Unconditioned Stimulus (US) elicits > Unconditioned Response (UR): a stimulus will naturally (without learning) elicit or bring about a relexive response

Neutral Stimulus (NS) ---> does not elicit the response of interest.Pairing with the Unconditional Stimulus will draw a connection between the unciondioned responseand neutral stimulus!!

Unconditioned Response (UR) Vs Condioned Response(CR) UR is the natural response from an unconditioned stiumulus.US is the learned response from association of US and NS.
