The study of little Albert is significant to psychology because it was inspired by Pavlov’s research on classical conditioning which is a meaningful concept in psychology. Watson’s experiment on little Albert proved that emotional reactions could be classically conditioned in people. That is, classical conditioning can be used to condition an emotional response in people. This suggests that our environment greatly influences us in many ways. Perhaps this study is significant in understanding phobia’s and diagnosing people that suffer from a phobia.
