In respect to this, what happened to Little Albert after the experiment?
What's more, a comparison of a picture of Albert with Douglas' portrait revealed facial similarities. Sadly, the team also discovered that Douglas died at age 6 of acquired hydrocephalus, and was unable to determine if Douglas' fear of furry objects persisted after he left Hopkins.
Beside above, what did we learn from the Little Albert experiment? Little Albert Experiment. The Little Albert Experiment demonstrated that classical conditioning—the association of a particular stimulus or behavior with an unrelated stimulus or behavior—works in human beings. In this experiment, a previously unafraid baby was conditioned to become afraid of a rat.
Likewise, people ask, what was unethical about the Little Albert experiment?
The Little Albert Experiment. By today's standards in psychology, the experiment would not be allowed because of ethical violations, namely the lack of informed consent from the subject or his parents and the prime principle of “do no harm”.
Did Little Albert died from the experiment?
In 2012, a group of American researchers led by Alan Fridlund and Hal Beck announced that they had uncovered new evidence that shows “Little Albert” is likely Douglas Merritte, a neurologically impaired baby who died shortly after the study.
