An Experiment in Learning

Here is an experiment in operant conditioning, in which the subject must learn that a certain behavior will produce a reward. In this case, we will see whether Abram, a toddler, and Haru, a very good dog, will ring a bell to get a bite of their favorite cheese. Of course they will. What’s more interesting are the confounding factors: Abram finds ringing the bell is fun regardless of the cheese, and Haru wants to please her humans more than anything. Overall, the outcome is irrelevant to the value of the video -it’s just so darn cute. -via Boing Boing
