Pavlov's Dogs Results? In a nutshell Groups Variables Experimental Design A revolutionary psychological experiment Ivan Pavlov This experiment founded classical conditioning The dogs salivated at the sight of food

Essentially, Pavlov combined the ringing of a bell with the presentation of dog food

The dogs began to associate their food with the ringing of a bell, and thus began to salivate when the bell rang Dependent Variable Desire Ounces of saliva in the test tube Independent Variable(s) Light Sound Light bulb turned on Bell rang Original stimulus elicits an automatic unlearned response

A neutral stimulus is then introduced just before the presentation of the original stimulus

If a neutral stimulus is presented alone, and the unlearned response occurs, the neutral stimulus becomes a conditioned response Pavlov's discovery of classical conditioning can be classified as an experimental design. There is a cause-effect relationship between the stimulus and the amount of salivation. Especially since the dogs gradually produced less and less salivation to the conditioned response. Control Dogs presented with food Experimental Dogs only hear the bell Pavlov proved that conditioned responses exist. He found that over time, conditioned responses lost their effect when they are not paired with the unconditioned stimulus. Population All dogs... although simple experiments can conclude that conditioned learning exists in humans as well And the dogs were able to live happily. Here is a general outline of classical conditioning, and how it specifically relates to Pavlov's experiment.
