The Pavlov's Dog Game - Help

Aim of the game

The object of this game is to try to make the dog drool on command using the correct combination of food (ham, sausages or bananas) and sound (horn, drum or bell).  You have to use the same sound every time you wake the dog up from his sleep to feed him, otherwise he will not learn to associate the sound with food. The dog will also not learn to respond to the sound if you serve him with food that he does not like.

Help - the Pavlov's Dog Game
Choose one of the sounds. To establish a conditioned response, you have to choose one sound and always use this sound before feeding.

Help - the Pavlov's Dog Game
Click on the instrument you have chosen, then feed the dog with something he likes by dragging the food onto the plate using the mouse cursor.

About the educational games

The educational games are based on Nobel Prize awarded discoveries and were produced between 2001 and 2012. The games have not been updated since production (including potential scientific facts changes) and are provided here on an 'as is' basis by popular demand.

The games require Adobe Flash Player. Adobe Flash is an old technology with an end of life by 2020 and these games will then no longer work without a dedicated setup. If you are depending of these games in your profession, please advice your local IT support. We do not have the resources to provide support.

We hope to publish a new version of the Blood typing game, our most popular game, in mid-2021.
