John Watson was the father of behaviorism.  He trained Little Albert to be fearful of bunnies by pairing it with a loud noise from a horn, I believe (I saw the old film of it) and then he extinquish the response. I believe.  Poor Little Albert.

I saw the old video on this as well . It makes me wonder what little Albert was like growing up if he still was fearful of bunnies. I Tried to find information about his later life but could not find anything.
