I remember reading about an experiment where this person got a baby. And each time that baby touched something white (or something like that) he set off an alarm scaring the child. So eventually the child became afraid of things that are white.

Does anyone know the name of that experiment itself or the psychological term for such a response?

(sorry about having to put this in the pit, Google isn't being very kind to me right now)

EDIT: He became afraid of things that are furry or wooly. Not white.

You're thinking of Little Albert.

And in fact it was the "Little Albert Experiment".

Isn't that a form of shock therapy? Associate pain with a certain thing, so that they grow to hate it?

I'm guessing this was quite a while ago?

Little Albert. The creepiest shit ever. Little Albert probably had a terrible subsequent life.

The weird part is nobody knows who he is. All his personal stuff was lost in a fire or something.
