David tests Pavlov’s theory of Classical Conditioning on his roommate Bryan at BGSU. It’s interesting, but the video and “experiment” also seems pretty fake (cool easy button thought!).
Warning, really nerdy educational stuff below. AkA, you may actually learn something:
Classical Conditioning is a learning process discovered by Russian physiologist Ivan Pavlov, in which a learned process occurs through associations between an environmental stimulus and a naturally occurring stimulus. In his famous experiment, Pavlov discovered that he could get his dog to salivate by just ringing a bell after conditioning.
In this case, David found out that he could get Bryan to flinch like a little bitch after pushing the “easy” button.
