The homology code in the conditional reflex: an interpretation of Ivan
In the conditional reflex experiments established by the great Russian
professor Ivan Pavlov, the founder of physiology, why the conditional
stimuli(ie ring) alone, after being reinforced several times, can
trigger the identical conditional reflex induced by the unconditional
stimuli(ie food) ?
The answer is: as two kinds/sets of different consciousness, the
conditional stimulation(ring) and the unconditional stimulation(food)
are both involved in establishing the same coding system, ie the code
for strong feelings toward eating.
After repeated reinforcement on experimental canines, both conditional
stimuli(ring) and unconditional stimuli(food) can establish/induce the
identical emotional reaction, which is called homology code.
Different consciousness shares some identical emotional code,
therefore various stimuli can produce the same emotional reaction via
conditional reflex. So it is clear that same feelings are always
involved among different consciousness.
Through conditional reflex, the feelings toward eating can control the
whole brain, a blackbox of energy supply, in term of its releasing of
relevant energy.These energy affect the cotex responsible for digestive
glands, leading to their enhanced secretion of saliva et al..
Humans" reactions are the same. Sitting hungrily before many delicious
foods, no one can wait to eat, with or without noticing their saliva
secretion, which is already markedly enhanced via the conditional
reflex. However, if he/she does not want to eat( because of mental or
phsiological reasons) or does not have the desire for eating, ie if
he/she does not have the feelings toward eating, his/her reactions are
of course quite different.
This is because that the related conditional stimuli, ie the related
conditional consciousness, must be conveyed or mediated by the
corresponding feelings to achieve their self-expression,which is
attested by the relevant conditional behavior output. This is a simple,
clear and perfect and powerful conditonal reflex arc.
It is the feelings, the pivital mediator, that link consciousness ,
emotional reactions and behavior output together, (making them highly
organized and ordered).
