Conditioning Experiments

  • Page ID
  • Research a famous conditioning experiment and report your findings to the class. Drop a summary in the drop box and be prepared to talk about your findings in class (unless you're part-time or from Children's). Feel free to work with another student if you would like.

    The summary should include:
    The experiment's name and creators.
    An explanation of what happened in the experiment.
    Your reaction to the experiment.
    You can create a document or power point or whatever else you can think of.

    Look for famous behaviorists like John Watson, B.F. Skinner, Ivan Pavlov, Albert Bandura, Edward Thorndike, etc. (Wikipedia is a good place to find behaviorist names).
    Also check out Youtube. There are a ton of videos on famous experiments from psychologists like Skinner and Bandura.
