Why is it that humans react to stimuli with certain behaviors? Can behaviors change in response to consequences? Peggy Andover explains how the brain can associate unrelated stimuli and responses, proved by Ivan Pavlov’s famous 1890 experiments, and how reinforcement and punishment can result in changed behavior.

  1. Hai friends, I have also uploaded an video about classical conditioning in my channel concepts in psychology .. simply explained d concept with animation.. kindly have a look.. thanks in advance 🙂

  2. I think this method of conditioning begins at birth, as we know, as infants if they cry their needs are met, if they laugh and giggle they get love and attention, if they mis behave they know they will be punished. I used these examples of human behavior so that tells us that it didn't begin with Pavlov, he just named the conditioning and made humanity aware of this.

  3. Isn’t this further advanced physiologically through the placebo effect? And neurologically through brain plasticity? And generationally through epigenetics?

  4. I think this may be a bit confusing, because jumping out of the chair may be considered a voluntary behavior and not a reflex.
    The person runs away because they have learnt that by running away they avoid aversive stimuli (negative reinforcement).
