Common experience and careful research both confirm that human emotion conditions very rapidly and easily. Particularly when the emotion is intensely felt or negative in direction, it will condition quickly. His findings raised the possibility that many of our responses, like those of the dogs, were the result of a simple learning process. In other words, our loves and hates, our tastes and distastes might be the consequences of nothing more mysterious that a conditioning process whereby various things in our environment became "linked" in our min... ... middle of paper ... ...lly "spreads," or generalizes, to thinks that resemble the conditioned stimulus. An example to this is in Watson's experiment with little Albert's spontaneous fear of rabbits, and other animals that resembles a white rate.
Different stimuli has effect on different individuals. Reinforcment is the act that is followed by a response with reinforcer. Various categories exist for reinforcement, which will be described after differentiating operant conditioning and classical conditioning. Classical conditioning is paring a natural stimulus with a neutral stimulus. A famous example is the Ivan Pavlov dog experiment.
He also tricked animals into believing what Napoleon says, and he had a perfect audience to listen to him, an uneducated, loyal group of animals. George Orwell really managed to articulate the message he wanted to get across with the use of language in its most powerful form ‘rhetoric’.
Classical learning is when a previously neutral stimulus and naturally occurring stimulus have an association formed between them. Just like when Ivan did the experience with his dogs, they now salivate from the ring of the bell because the association formed between the two stimulus. Operant learning is tied with your behaviors, and the outcome. We are most likely to stop doing things when we get a punishment from them, but when we get a reward we are most likely to keep doing that thing that gets us that reward. Observation learning is from when we watch others and how they do things, and we learn from it.
Ivan Pavlov was an influential physiologist, who accidently discovered what’s known as classical conditioning. (King, 2016) When he was conducting an experiment on a dog, in an effort to learn about the digestive system, he noticed that the dog would salivate when meat powder was placed in his mouth. Eventually he noticed that the dog would start to salivate, even when the meat powder was absent. He discovered that all of the stimuli that caused the dog to salivate had a connection to the meat powder. Curious as to why this occurred, he observed the dog’s behavior, and noticed that the dog’s behavior was both learned and unlearned.
“A neutralstimulus that, after repeated pairings with an unconditioned stimulus, becomesassociated with it and elicits a conditioned response.” (World of Psychologypg167) In English it is something thatis used to train someone or something through repetition. Pavlov made use of this in his experiment toshow classical conditioning. Where asan unconditioned stimulus is something that is unlearned but is just respondedto out of instinct. Pavlov’s dog, for examplehad one unconditioned stimulus and one conditioned stimulus. Both the conditioned and unconditionedstimuli were to an unconditioned response, the dog salivating.
The dogs would associate food with the bells. Anytime they heard a bell they would salivate. This behavior is called Classical Conditioning. How does Classical condition apply to the nursing field? My theory is behavior theory can be used to change behaviors of those frequent flyers that just come in to get drugs who are not truly sick, but have conditioned themselves to get meds.
He studied the behavior of dogs and how they would salivating (conditioned reflex) when shown just the food dish without food (conditioned stimulus or conditioned response). Next, John B. Watson wrote a book called Behavior, where he described psychology as the process where behavior can be predicted and controlled. Watson also studied how learning can be achieved through a repeated stimulus and specific responses. Edward Thorndike described behaviorism as "a description of a man’s mind is that it is his connection system, adapting the responses of thought, feeling, and action that he makes to the situation that he meets". Thorndike also studied how the "law of effect" and "law of exercise" affects a person’s learning abilities.
Russian life scientist Ivan Pavlov was the primary to explain conditioning. In conditioning, additionally referred to as “respondent learning” or “Pavlovian conditioning,” a topic involves reply to a neutral information as he would to a different, nonneutral information by learning to associate the 2 stimuli. Pavlov’s contribution to learning began with his study of dogs. Not astonishingly, his dogs drooled anytime he gave them food. Then he detected that if he plumbed a tone anytime he fed them, the dogs soon began to drool at the sound of the tone, even though no food followed it.
He drilled holes through the cheeks of dogs where he inserted a probe to detect salivation. He then conditioned them by ringing a bell when they were presented with food. Eventually, he discovered that just by the ringing of a bell the dogs would begin to salivate in anticipation of fo... ... middle of paper ... ...te’ In this industry bloodlines and breeding is the first deciding factor.

While voice training, and singing exercises may be some help.
