Pavlov developed the theory of Classical Conditioning. This is where certain stimuli can invoke particular behavior. He conducted his experiments on dogs, testing whether or not he could condition them to salivate at the sound of a bell. At first, along with the bell, he would hold up food, causing the dogs to salivate. After repeating this action numerous times, Pavlov would ring the bell without the food and found that the dogs would still salivate.
The Ivan Pavlov’s experiment of the dog that salivated at the sound of a tone because the food would follow, showed that a reflex which is an involuntary reaction, such as salivation, which normally happens when there is actual food in the mouth, could be caused by a totally unrelated stimulus, the ringing of a bell (Saudra et al, 2014, p27). John B. Watson in 1913 argued that psychology should redefine itself as the science of behaviour (Weiten, 2014,p6)’. B.F.Skinner bragged that he could teach a child from any type of background to be someone else when he was supporting his theory that it is not heredity but the environment which determines who people become. 2.2 Psychoanalytic Psychoanalytic theory is a theory which was developed by Sigmund Freud which explored personality, motivation, mental disorder by focusing on unconsciousness and determining behaviour. ‘Freud’s work is concerned with documenting and explaining the regulation
Martin Seligman’s Theory Of Learned Helplessness Learned helplessness is a phenomenon occurred when a living thing learned to be helpless in a specific condition after a period of training or experience about the specific condition (Ciccarelli & White, 2012). In 1967, Martin Seligman first identified the term “learned helplessness”(Joyce, 2005). He and his colleagues grouped the dogs into three groups and put them into different condition (Kathrya, n.d.). At first, the dogs that were “inescapable shocked” which mean the dogs would not be able to escape although it was been electrical shocked. After a few shocked, the same group of dog was placed into another place that can be escape easily.
Outsmart your owner. We dogs like to eat and have treats. But there are only two ways we will get them: being a good dog and listening or not being a good dog and not listening until they say “ lets have a treat” (the second choice is much better). This is a lot more fun because you get to see your owner all flustered and frustrated. Don’t let them take away your bone so you must scare them off.
As Ann was about to devour the repelling meals she described in full detail the stomach- churning truth behind dog food. Although it may look delicious it is far from it. Not many would brave the task of trying out different typed of dog food just out of curiosity. But as the old saying goes, “curiosity killed the cat” and indeed she stated that at one point she would have faced death if she indulged on the greasy bite of dog food that had no absolute

After I have read The Jungle by Upton Sinclair, I have really believed that it time for us to change how the meat, especially sausage, is made. Why is it that the meat we eat can be made with animals, even rats, running over it? I believe that more regulation should be put on the owners so that the meat is clean, without “...meat that had tumbled out on the floor...where the workers had tramped and spit..and thousands of rats would race about it.” (Doc. D) This is not a job that people would want to work at just because of the disgust. This industry has to be changed with stricter regulations that protect the workers and provide uncontaminated food to the
We shouldn’t silent such a topic, because of fears of upsetting people who affected – yet they should know what they are applying to their face is being used to torture innocent animals. One type of testing – and arguably, one of the worst – is Draize tests. This involves taking a young rabbit and trapping hundreds in confined stocks together. Then, taking a rabbit, clipping its eyelids to prevent their bodies instinct to repel the toxic chemicals by blinking, and shaving their stomachs. Toxic chemicals are then poured and smeared in the rabbit’s eyes and monitored to check how toxic it is.
In To Kill A Mockingbird, Lee uses Scout and Arthur Radley to show that “ To understand someone’s perspective, you need to know their point of view”, this reveals that to know someone’s way of doing and thinking you need to view things in their point of view. The author uses characterization to show the perspective of the kids towards Arthur Radley “Boo Radley...dined on raw squirrels and any cats he could find..what teeth he had were yellow and rotten…(16). This is how ARthur was introduced in the beginning of the book. This shows that Scout and Jem have these thoughts of Arthur as a mean guy, but have no actually seen him in person. Jem and scout didn’t know Arthur at all but they felt that his way of seeing things was different from what it actually was.
The petrifying rats signify the breaking point. An authoritarian government will often construct a method to drive its citizens toward their breaking point. In the passage, the authoritarian government attempting to break Winston uses rats to do so. Essentially, the rats accomplish their task. The rats are so horrid that Winston suggest another individual suffer his punishment: “Do it to Julia!
