Pavlov’s Contribution to the Science
PSYCHIATRY proved the physiological basis of the psyche (in experiments with conditioned reflexes)

PSYCHOLOGY developed the doctrine of temperaments (based on the properties of the nervous system); to the doctrine of temperaments adds the division of people into thinking, artistic and average types

PSYCHOTHERAPY has had a huge impact on the objective, quantifiable approach of physiological processes of the body in behaviorism, reflexology, conditioned reflex therapy

NEURO-LINGUISTIC PROGRAMMING introduced the concept of a second signaling system (speech), through which (in a word) it is possible to influence the first signaling system (sensations) for therapeutic health purposes

PSYCHOSOMATICS proved the influence of the cerebral cortex on the work of internal organs and their diseases (cortico-visceral theory of K.M. Bykov), preconditions for psychosomatics

NEUROLOGY teaching about experimental neuroses (breakdowns): about their occurrence (overstrain of the NS) and extinction (rest, elimination of negative stimuli); as well as some mental illnesses (protective inhibition, pathological disinhibition-arousal; Pavlov’s symptom)

together with M.K. Petrova is developing a soothing mixture based on bromine and caffeine, taking into account the dosage based on the characteristics of the patient’s NS (later "Pavlova's Mixture")

GASTROENTEROLOGY, based on the method of sham feeding, received natural gastric juice used as a medicine for digestion

SOMNOLOGY scientifically substantiated the benefits of sleep therapy (sleep therapy) based on the discovery of the protective and healing role of inhibition, also described the physiology of suggestion and hypnosis

SURGERY has developed and improved surgical methods for studying body functions for experiments: "Pavlov's isolated ventricle", "Eck-Pavlov's fistulas", etc.

outstanding research on the work of the main digestive glands ("recreation" of the true physiology of digestion)

BLOOD CIRCULATION studies on the physiology of blood circulation that have become classic

COGNITIVISTICS introduced the concept of "goal reflex" (encouraged collecting, hobbies); the concept of "freedom reflex" (indicated the decisive role of the balance of freedom (arousal) and discipline (inhibition) in education)

POPULARIZATION gave critical lectures on the subjectivity of psychologists; with public critical lectures on the characteristics of the Russian mind (mentality); with lectures on the moral instruction of youth
