There are studies that show that the little boy referred to "Little Albert" in Watson's experiment wasn't the healthy boy they made him out to be. He actually had died at the age of 6. People are blaming Watson for putting fear into the baby's life.
John Watson did the 'little Albert' experiment for condoning. With his experiments he would associate loud noises with furry animals, or furry things. Well as Albert got older he became afraid of all things furry. The conditioning showed that fear is learned, but at a price. Albert was also not a healthy little baby, the child had an abnormal amount of spill fluid in the brain. Albert died at the age of six but because Watson never said anything, he could have been linked to his death.
It should be considered to teach John B Watson's experiments with little albert. He eventully kept the fear and was possibly not healthy for the experiment. The child died at the age of 6 with the fear extending to anything remotely furry. This is considered unethical and is considered science fraud. Even his own life was unethical with scandals."
His methods were questioned by many people due to ethical standards. One of the babies he did these experiments on had a long term effect. He tried to make the baby afraid of furry animals for the duration of the experiment. The babies continued to be afraid of not only furry animals, but other things such as fur coats and white masks
Watson did an experiment on a 9 month old infant on behavior. He had placed a white rat in front of the baby and the baby had not fear towards the rat. When Watson associated the rat with a loud noise, that scared the baby and made him cry. Watson did that repeatedly with Albert to see if fear can be learned. So, every time Albert seen anything furry he would cry and get scared. If Albert seen anything white, he would cry and get scared. Watson proved that fear can be learned.
When you continue to do something over and over to a child or anyone no matter who they are they will eventually catch on to what’s happening. For instance if you make a scary sounds while a baby is playing with animals and you continue to do so it will get scared of the animal and the sound. Baby Albert had too much spinal fluid causing him not to be healthy or normal meaning his reaction could be cause from his health. He also grew up scared of everything that was furry no matter what it was. According to the article Watson knew about the child’s health issues but did nothing about it and continued his experiments.
They are talking about if the little Albert experiment was ethical and how they still don’t know the identity of the baby who was in the experiment. The baby ended up being scared of all things furry like fur coats and white masks. There is debates on whether they got consent by the mother to do the experiment and there’s knew research how the baby might no have even been healthy enough to do it with.
Little baby Albert didnt only fear furry animals he feared everything furry.
Watson methods were questioned by people for ethical standered.
some experices left long term effects
Watson’s experiment with baby Albert turns out to be inaccurate due to the fact that the baby had problems. The baby died at the age of 6, which shows that he had something wrong with him. Watson conditioned the baby, but then he didn’t follow up on him. The baby was unhealthy and had fluid in the brain. Some say that Watson didn’t even have a formal consent to even do the expierment on the baby and then not follow up on the effects.
Watson used an infant as a test subject in an experiment with his 21-year old graduate student Rosalie Raynor. Watson and Raynor applied the principles of classical conditioning to test whether they could get the baby to develop a fear response to different furry animals. Watson suppressed that information to augment the study's findings, perhaps reasoning that an unresponsive child would provide a better baseline for later strong reactions and help deflect accusations of child maltreatment. The subject of Watson's and Rayner's famous 1920 emotion-conditioning investigation at Johns Hopkins University—may not have been the ‘healthy,’ ‘normal’ boy Watson touted, but a neurologically impaired child who suffered from congenital hydrocephalus.
Watson had been questioned many times about whether or not his methods prove to be morally ethical. Apparently there showed zero signs there were any followups on the condition of the child. Recent studies show Albert had already been impaired by congenial hydrocephalus.Albert died at the age of six. Watson had suppressed almost all of the information about this experiment.
Experts found the child that Watson experimented with wasn't a "normal boy".They suggest that Watson kept that information to increase the study's findings and to also not get accused of child abuse .Watson thought that a child like him would have had better reactions.Little Albert died later on at 6 years old.
On the passage I read Watson did an experiment on a 9 month old infant on behavior. He placed a white rat in front of the baby and the baby was not scared the rat. Watson also played the rat with a loud noise, it scared the baby and made him cry. Watson did that repeatedly with Albert to see if fear can be learned. So, every time Albert seen anything furry he would cry. If Albert seen anything white, he would cry and get scared.
Studies showed that Albert wasn't that healthy. He had a brain problem and he ended up dying at the age of 6. And beliefs showed that maybe him doing the tests on the baby maybe effected his life span too.
In this article Watson did an experiment on an infant with furry animals. But it turns out that the experiment of conditioning didn't work because this infant had problems such as fluid in the brain. This baby had ended up passing away at the age of 6. This man by the name of John Watson tried to scare the baby with a white rat at first it didn't scare him. Then he tried showing the white rat with a loud noise and that scared the baby then after a certain amount of time the baby was scared of the sight of furry animals.
