So Watson and his partner obtainedan infant named "Albert" and theyused him for their experiment ofclassical conditioning. Albert loved animals especially a white rat. He had no initial fearsof animals up until the experiment started. Watson and his partner wouldlet Al play with the rat and leavehim alone. But soon they tooktwo metal rods and banged themevery time the rat would be nearAl. Soon Al became very afraidof the white rat and mostfurry things. Furthermore, Al would naturallycry from the noise but soonAl would start crying at the sightof the rat. This experiment showsthat emotional responses could be conditioned in humans. Soon the experiment got calledoff and no one knows whathappened to little Al, if he isstill afraid of rats and furry thingsor if he grew out of it. This experiment showsthat classical conditioningis an interaction betweennature and nurture. Sources "10 Famous Psychological Experiments That Could Never Happen Today." Mental Floss.
