Ivan Pavlov

Exploring the Mysteries of Behavior

Series: Great Minds of Science

By Barbara R. Saunders

Although Russian scientist Ivan Pavlov is best known for his experiments with dogs, which were key to the development of behaviorism, few realize that he actually won the 1904 Nobel Prize for his research on digestion. In this latest title in the GREAT MINDS OF SCIENCE series, author Barbara Saunders examines Pavlov’s enormous contributions to our modern understanding of the relationship between the mind and body.
