Phobias - January 20th 2011, 05:08 PM

I was watching a documentary about Psychology and emotions a few nights ago. They mentioned phobias and the "Little Albert experiment" about conditioning. It made me thinking, when I was doing Psychology my tutor said that some phobias may be adapted from evolution (like the phobia of spiders and snakes) so if you give a small child a spider would they be scared of it? obviously you'd have to give it to about 30 children to make a judgement though.

Has there ever been experiments involving spiders and babies? I'm just interested.

Not that I've heard of. Could be a possibility though, if it's real it's definitely not well known.

Thanks for the reply I doubt they would be able to do it in 2011 anyway as it's quite unethical imo.

Yeah I agree, (if it hasn't happened before) I definitely don't see it happening anytime soon...

This is why I shouldn't have children, I'd be giving them spiders to see if they're scared
