    Curiosity that struck Ivan Pavlov with the idea of reflexes that all organisms possess led to the beginning of classical conditioning. It became the very first concept of learning, which consequently inspired other behaviorist psychologists to come up with more learning theories. As a result, Ivan Pavlov is considered one of the first people to establish behaviorist psychology and define its position and beliefs. Over time, behaviorist psychologists together modified the existing learning theories

    Ivan Pavlov’s classical conditioning experiment on different dogs shows how dogs “automatic salivate when seeing food” (McLeod, 2013). Ivan Pavlov stated “some things that a dog does are not need to learn” dog’s reflexes are from undefined reaction, and their motivation required no learning (McLeod, 2013). Therefore, Pavlov classical conditioning experiment is important in the development of psychology, because it introduces the study of laws of learning and conditioning. Behaviorism from Watson’s

    Ivan Pavlov was a psychologist in Russia in the early twentieth century. He was doing research on the salivation in dogs in response to being fed.

He did more experiments with the dogs and different stimuli. Through his new experiments he came up with the theory of classical conditioning. Classical conditioning

    We use the term classical conditioning to describe one type of associative learning in which there is no contingency between response and reinforcer. This situation resembles most closely the experiment from Pavlov in the 1920s, where he trained his dogs to associate a bell ring with a food-reward (Ryle 1995). In such experiments, the subject initially shows weak or no response to a conditioned stimulus (CS, e.g. the bell), but a measurable unconditioned response (UCR, e.g. saliva production) to
