Classical conditioning is one of the forms of associative learning in which two stimuli are linked together to produce a new learned response in an animal or person. Classical conditioning is sometimes referred to as “pavlovian” conditioning, named after the Russian physician Ivan Pavlov who first conducted an experiment to confirm that a stimulus acquires the ability to evoke a response that was initially evoked by another stimulus (Pavlov, 1927).
