[Xmca-l] pavlovian humor

I’m working in Mexico this week, and heard a talk this morning by Rodrigo Ramos- Zúñiga, a neuroscientist of some repute in these parts.

During his talk he showed a slide of Pavlov in the lab, recording notes while a dog responded to a stimulus. Rodrigo observed that Pavlov thought that by ringing a bell, he was producing a reaction in the dog; but the dog thought that by salivating, he was causing the old man to start writing things in his notebook.
