Let us review briefly the main points of Pavlov's findings. If a normally indifferent agent, such as any sound, light, heat, scratch or electrical effect is produced immediately before food is introduced into the mouth of a dog, it is found, with a certain number of repetitions of the procedure, that saliva production starts at the application of the agent without the help of the food. Thus, an indifferent stimulus, when associated a certain number of times with another that normally elicits an inborn (unconditioned) reflex, acquires the property of eliciting the inborn reflex also when applied alone.
Lithe use of the terms in the sense Pavlov attributed to them is justified, psychology becomes at once only a translation of the conditioned reflexes theory into usual language, and loses any justification for independence. At the best, it becomes a rather loose application to voluntary innervation of findings strictly only applicable. to involuntary innervations. Pavlov and his school confidently assert that their findings are, in fact, the foundation of a new psychology based on physiological functioning.
A bird in Japan sings much the same song as a bird of the same species in Britain. That song is a genetic inheritance, an inborn activity moulded on an ancestral pattern evolved with the species. In man there is no genetic inheritance of language, gait or any other muscular activity; every group can make their own. Some of the similarity of muscular activity, as in speech, resembling that of the parents, must be attributed to the inherited anatomical structure which favours, in the presence of the parents, a predilection for one mode of vocal activity among many possibilities.
