    Little Albert Experiment

    What the Study Demonstrated about Human Behavior and Mental Processes
    The Little Albert Experiment proves that classical conditioning works in human beings.
    Classical conditioning refers to the linkage between a certain behavior or stimulus and an
    unrelated behavior or stimulus (Hock, 2015). In 1920, Professor John Watsons Prof. Watson
    showed Albert a dog, a monkey, a white rat, and a rabbit. The Albert developed a liking for the
    white rat and reacted positively when they interacted. This can be regarded as the unconditioned
    response with the unconditioned stimulus. Watson introduced a conditioned stimulus into the test
    (Cherry, n.d). As the baby attempted to touch the rat, he made a loud ear-piercing noise to create
    fear. Later, the baby refused to touch the rat and began crying as the rat approached him; Watson
    successfully instilled the baby a fear leading to the reaction (YouTube Video, 2010).
    It was worked successfully when he generalized the rat with the comparable animals. A
    similar thing happened when he used the rabbit and the dog. The baby created a fear and
    generalized it to anything related to the rat he was liked (YouTube Video, 2010). After a month,
    baby Albert was again brought for similar testing and it worked meaning he developed a fear.
    Phobias are normally conditioned responses. Sadly, Albert passed away after suffering from
    acquired hydrocephalus while 6 years old and some follow-up could not be made (Hock, 2015).
    The experiment reinforces how humans are conditioned or programmed. Human behavior
    or stimulus can easily be conditioned through repeated behaviors or actions. Psychologists
    usually study the mental processes and human behavior by observing, interpreting, as well as
    recording how such people rela...
