This storyboard does not have a description.
Little Albert was a baby that was experimented on to see if emotional reactions could be classically conditioned. The experiment was overseen by a man called Watson
Little Albert was exposed to things such as white rat, a dog, fire and a monkey these were labelled: the neutral stimuli. Little Albert showed no fear towards these and in fact was quite happy
Then Watson paired the neutral stimuli with a long bang which he created by banging a metal rod. This caused the baby to cry and move away from the animal creating an unconditioned response
The pairing was then repeated several times to create an association between the animals and little Albert
After the repetition whenever little Albert saw a white fluffy animal he would start crying and even move away from it. Therefore the neutral stimulus has become the conditioned stimulus and the neutral response became the conditioned response
The results showed that the classical conditioning had been a success as little Albert now was frightened by anything white and fluffy
