For my 8th grade school science fair I studied Classical Conditioning and applied it to volunteer classmates using a desk bell and red pepper flakes. I would have them consume enough flakes to feel the spicy sensation on their tongue while ringing the desk bell then wait for the sensation to go away. I repeated this process three times. For the fourth time, I did not give them the red pepper flakes but rang the desk bell. The ringing of the desk bell triggered, much to each subject's surprise, the spicy sensation on each subject's tongue. My use of Pavlov's Classical Conditioning won me first place in my school science fair. This video is a short, descriptive presentation of Classical Conditioning.
