ABSTRACT

Neal Elgar Miller was an American experimental psychologist. delineated  as a vigorous man with a range of interests, together with physics, biology and writing, Miller entered the sector of psychology to pursue these. With a background coaching within the sciences, he was galvanized by professors and leading psychologists at the time to figure on varied areas in behavioural psychology and physiological psychology, specifically, relating visceral responses to behavior.

Miller\'s early work targeted on experimenting with Freudian ideas on behavior in real-life things. His most notable topic was worry. Miller came to the conclusion that worry can be learned through conditioning. Miller then determined to increase his research to different involuntary drives, like hunger, to envision if they worked within the same manner. His distinctive ideas and experimental techniques to check these involuntary drives resulted in findings that modified ideas concerning motivations and behavior.
