The Plan of "Salivation"

Classical Conditioning in The Office from Marsha Johnson on Vimeo.
In my Stress Management class we were talking about classical conditioning. It was really interesting to compare this to how our bodies naturally identify certain situations to be stressful and respond accordingly. We are essentially classically conditioned to have physical stress responses to these 'triggers.' (could be the cold of the testing center, a certain person, a sound... anything that could bring on this physical response!)
I like this class.
