What did Pavlov's study prove?
Pavlov's study involved ringing a bell and then giving a dog a treat. This was repeatedly done. Eventually the scientist rang the bell and did not give the treat. It was observed that the dog would drool. This proved in some capacity that reactions to things are created. For example, if the bell rang, the dog didn't coincidentally want the treat. The dog began to associate the treat with the bell. Hence, our reactions to things are based on associations we have been taught both directly and indirectly.
