Functions of the Brain: Behaviour of Human and Animal

Alternative title
Functions of the Brain: Behaviour of Man and Animal, Mechanism of the Brain
Synopsis
This silent film features documentary footage of Ivan Petrovich Pavlov’s laboratory, originally shown in 1932. It shows Pavlov performing an experiment with children who are fed cookies via a mechanical device to demonstrate conditioned responses; an experiment with a dog that demonstrates alimentary unconditioned reflexes; unconditioned reflex responses and conditioned responses using food, sound or a shock plate. There is also footage comparing child development from a newborn to a six-year-old. Fascinating because ethically these experiments could never be replicated.
