Scientist. A Russian physiologist, psychologist and physician, he was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine in 1904 for research pertaining to the digestive system. Pavlov was the first to describe the phenomenon now known as conditioning in his experiments with dogs. Due to his international fame, the Soviet government had to allow the scientist to continue his researches until he was a considerable age and even attend the church located closely to the place where he lived. The church was demolished shortly after the death of Pavlov.
