Neuroscience

Neuroscience is the science study of the nervous system .Neuroscience is a branch of biology. It is currently aninterdisciplinenary science that collaborates with other fields such as chemistry, computer science , engineering , linguitists ,mathematics,medicine, genetics , and allied discipline including philosofy , physics , and psychology .

Evolutionary

Evolution is the change in inheirted characteristics of biological populations over successive generations. Evolutionary processes give rise to diversity at every level of biological organizations, including species , indiviual organisms and molecules such as DNA

Behavior Genetics

Behavioural genetics, also commonly referred to as behaviour genetics, is the field of study that examines the role of genetics in animal (including human) behaviour. Often associated with the "versus nurture " debate, behavioural genetics is highly interdisciplinary , involving contributions from biology , genetics , epigenetics , ethology, psyochology , and statistics.

Social Cultural

The " Little Albert " Experiment

The "Little Albert" experiment was a famous psychology experiment conducted by behaviorist John Waston .Watson was interested in taking research further to show that emotional reactions could be classically conditioned in people.


The next time Albert was exposed the rat, Watson made a loud noise by hitting a metal pipe with a hammer. Naturally, the child began to cry after hearing the loud noise. After repeatedly pairing the white rat with the loud noise, Albert began to cry simply after seeing the rat.

In This video Little Albert is taught how to fear a rat. This illustrates classical conditioning.when the experiment was repeated, Little Albert cried when he saw the rat even before Watson had a chance to make the loud noise with the hammer. This experiment was successful in conditioning the baby to fear the rat by associating - it with a loud, scary noise.
