Frae his bairnheid days Pavlov demonstratit intellectual curiosity alang wi an unusual energy that he referred tae as "the instinct for resairch".[2] Inspired bi the progressive ideas that D. I. Pisarev, the maist eminent o the Roushie leeterar creetics o the 1860s, an I. M. Sechenov, the faither o Roushie pheesiology, war spreidin, Pavlov abandoned his releegious career an devotit his life tae science. In 1870, he enrolled in the pheesics an mathematics depairtment at the Varsity o Saunt Petersburg in order tae study naitural science.[1]
