Little Albert and Classic Conditioning Wattrina Holiday June 18, 2013 South University Online Professor Revell For a long time psychologists wondered whether psychological conditioning was possible or not. Conditioning means to train an individual’s mind in such fashion that he or she behaves in a particular way. However, it was mainly just a hypothesis before Watson and Rayner conducted their first experiment. To get some scientific conclusion regarding this hypothesis Watson and Rayner conducted an experiment in 1920 at Johns Hopkins University with a little boy, named Albert. The experiment started when the child was just 11 months and 3days old.
The HPV Immunization in Sons (HIS) study surveyed parents and their 11–17 year old sons to examine their attitudes and beliefs about HPV vaccination for males. Parents were existing members of a national panel of U.S. households maintained by a survey company. This was a convenience sample because it utilized a national panel that utilized a probability-based sample (a list-assisted, random-digit dialing supplemented by address-based sampling).

Historical development to the present day . The people influential in its development Dr Carl Ransom Rogers (1902-1987) and American Psychologist was the founder of Person Centred Counselling back in the 1950’s born in Oak Park Illinois. Rogers attended Teachers College at Columbia University where he engaged in child study. In 1930 Rogers served for the society for the prevention of cruelty to children in Rochester; where he went on to write The Clinical treatment of the problem child (1939), which was based on his experience in working with children. With the years’ experience of working with troubled children, Rogers was influenced in constructing his client-centred approach by the post-freudian psychotherapeutic practice of Otto Rank.

OUTLINE AND EVALUATE THE USE OF THE STRANGE STUATION TO ASSESS ATTACHMENT 12 MARKS The SS (strange situation) is a controlled observation research technique used to measure the kind of attachment between an infant (age between 9 – 18 months) and a parent. Ainsworth used 25 middle class working women and infants to help carry out this experiment. It is conducted in a lab environment with a 9x9 foot square, marked off in 16 squares to help record the infants’ movement accurately so as to compare and record how far the child explores. The procedure lasts 21 minutes each lasting three minutes. Ainsworth observed the experiment covertly using a one way mirror so as not do distort her results by having another stranger in the room.
Method Participants A total of 179 first year psychology undergraduates at the University of Essex participated as part of their course project for PS114 – Research Methods in Psychology. Apparatus Each participant viewed the stimuli and recorded their answers on either an iMac or eMac. Materials Lists of stimuli totalling 96 words were used from 8 lists from Roediger and McDermott’s (1995) original study on ‘creating false memories’ in the first phase of this experiment. 48 additional words were taken from a further 8 lists in the original, to be presented in the second phase of the study. These lists each had a theme based around a target word which was the critical lure.
Clarita Sullivan Mrs. Mertes AP Psychology Summer Homework August 25, 2015 Unit 1: Psychology's History and Approaches Module 1: Psychology's History 1. Psychologists/Schools a. Wilhelm Wundt, a middle-aged professor, constructed an experimental apparatus that was designed to measure people's reaction times of when a ball would hit and when they would press the button. In this experiment of 1879, Wundt's main goal was to measure the "atoms of the mind." Wundt's simple experiment is significant because it actually ignited the birth of psychology, with the first psychological lab being formed. b. G. Stanley Hall is one of Wundt's students who eventually established the initial actually formal psychology laboratory in 1883.
Chabris. This subject is addressed in the article Music Lessons Enhance IQ, where researchers conduct an experiment on a group of six year old children; giving two groups music lessons for one year, one group drama lessons for one year, and one group no lessons. The lessons lasted for 36 weeks, with several different teachers conducting the classes. The WISC-III test, the Kaufman Test of Educational Achievement, and the Parent Rating Scale of Behavioral Assessment System for Children were all administered before the experiment commenced. The hypothesis that the researcher’s came up with for this experiment was, quite obviously, that musical lessons enhance IQ.

In 1968, the day after Martin Luther King Jr. was killed, a third grade teacher named Jane Elliott conducted an experiment with her class. This experiment helps others understand how people change when they are being treated unfairly. This experiment can help us better understand why and where Grendel went wrong and turned from good to evil. In the experiment, a third grade class was divided into two groups, one group with brown eyed children and one group with blue eyed children. On the first day of the experiment, the teacher told the brown eyed group that they had the superior eye color, which meant that they were smarter, more athletic, and better than the blue eyed group.
