The Little Albert experiment describes how classical conditioning can be used to create an emotional/physiological response. His experiment helps to prove that behavior is not entirely based on biology but in fact, behavior is learnt through conditions/experiences. We are conditioned to react to certain stimuli due to prior exposure. For example, when we hear a bell, we automatically stop what we are doing and are alert. This is because in schools, as early as Kindergarten the bell is used to signify that the period is over. Another example would be when we hear the bell for dismissal at school which tells student's it is time to go home. We are conditioned to behave according to the sound of the bell and behave appropriately. In the little Albert experiment, Watson exposed 9 month old Albert to different animals. However, when he exposed him to the rat, he made a loud noise to which Albert responded with fear. I believe Little Albert is constantly talked about in psychology because it proves that classical conditioning exists. His experiment helped prove Ivan Pavlov's classical conditioning theory.
