The in-dependant variable in the experiment is the white fluffy things used, for example, White rat. The dependant variable is the fear response to the white fluffy things. An extraneous variable the experiment being in a lab, although what Watson and Rayne did was then perform the experiment in in different locations including alberts home and the same results were found. The experiment showed that little albert seemed to generalise his response to fluffy objecs as when he was shown a non-white rabbit, santa clause mask, seal skinned coat etc, he showed similar reactions although before he did not fear anything with fur. The loud noise was an unconditioned stimulus to Albert which he showed an unconditioned fear response before the conditioning started.
That night these two monkeys died. Bill Volt the decided to open them up to try to figure out what had happened. Upon doing so he discovered that the monkeys had enlarged spleens, which puzzled him. So he called Dalgard again to have him come back. Immediately Dalgard did, to him it appeared that the monkeys had come down with simian hemorrhagic fever (SFH).
20 days later the same experiment took place with a rabbit, which purposely was not white like the rat yet he still had the same reactions towards it as he did with the white rat. This continued with many other random objects with fur and no fur. After all these tests, Watson and Rayner were prepared to present the notion that it was possible to train a child to fear something he/she wouldn’t usually fear. In this case the rat began by being the neutral stimulus and over time became the conditioned stimulus. Since the conditioned fear lasted after 31 days they claimed it might last for Albert’s whole life.

Dr. Kenneth Schonberg a pediatric doctor says, "There's no evidence that a child who is spanked moderately is going to grow up to be a criminal or anti-social or violent" (Rosellini 2). Although many psychologists and doctors have tried to prove this with false statistics, there is only proof that properly spanking a child will only benefit him or
Children who come in contact with methamphetamine on a daily basis can develop cancer or liver, kidney, spleen, or brain damage. Toxic ingredients used in cooking meth linger on the places where cooked, even after someone has cleaned the place. Since meth ingredients can lead to explosions, children have a high risk of burns and wounds. Prah emphasizes that because of meth, two hundred and fifty children from Wyoming in three months had to leave their house. Across the United States neglected children live in fear of their parents day by
In the experiment Watson took a nine month old boy, named Albert, and exposed him to a white rat. At first Albert wasn’t afraid of the rat, but after a while every time Albert would touch the rat Watson would make a loud noise behind his back. Albert cried as he heard the noise, this happened several times. The next day when Watson placed the white rat in front of Albert, he cried and crawled away. Albert had associated the white rat
The Monster Study caused this. Wendell Johnson knew he needed a speech pathologist so he became one. With this being said, Mr. Johnson worked in psychology because speech pathology was not considered a type of psychology in those times. Key Experiments The most well-known experiment conducted by Mr. Wendell Johnson was the Monster Study. This experiment took 22 orphaned children some with stutter problems and some without.
There have been some great accomplishments from the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act of 2004 (IDEA) and the Education of All Handicapped Children Act (EAHCA). Prior to this act, there were no promises that a child with a learning disability would be able to get free funding for education, let alone have a child with a learning disability go to school. In most cases the school felt that they were not obligated to care of these individuals. Instead these children were forced into institutions that even criminals wouldn’t envy and with no guarantee that they would ever be released. So, I believe that the laws for IDEA 2004 do well to protect disabled learners and people with special needs.
Xaby received it as a gift when he was 2 years old but, when he pressed the button he automatically jumped back and started crying. When his mother realized that it scared him, she started to threaten him with the gorilla. Whenever he would misbehave or throw a tantrum for not getting his way, his mom would put him in timeout with the gorilla, leading him to get his act together quickly. Whenever his mom would pull out the gorilla even if for a minute, he would stop acting up. Xaby is now conditioned to fear the robotic gorilla.
