Pavlov's dog

Play

In this game, your task is to induce salivation in the dog, using the food and other instruments at your disposal.

Did your dog get its diploma?

ANSWERS

If you made sure you produced the conditioned stimulus (the horn, bell, or drum) just before offering the unconditioned stimulus (meat, not fruit) and provided several repetitions, then you probably saw the dog make the mental association, and salivate upon presentation of the conditioned stimulus, without waiting for the unconditioned stimulus.
