In 1927, Ivan Pavlov experimented with his dog on the subject of psychological training--specifically conditional stimuli and response. He found that when he rang a bell each time before he fed his dog, the dog no longer salivated in response to the food, but to the bell.
A conditional response is when you're trained to respond to something such as Pavlov's bell, as opposed to using simply your reflexes.
