Ivan Pavlov

By Yeshua Betts

Who is Ivan Pavlov?

Ivan Pavlov was a scientist that studied the digestive system of dogs. Ivan was born on September 14, 1849. He dropped out of school just to study science, which seems a little extreme to me.

What Ivan did.

Like I said earlier, he studied the digestion of dogs. He also figured out how to make a dog drool at the sound of a bell. This happened because saliva is produced to break down food. So when the bell was rang, it was like the sound of food.

3 Cool Facts

  • People that fed Ivan's dogs wore lab coats (which also made the dogs drool for some reason).
  • Ivan lived in RUSSIA.
  • He had an interest in natural history.
