Summary Introduction

To determine:

How might Harlow’s studies on attachment in infant monkeys apply to human children and their caregivers?

Concept introduction:

Attachment to caregivers ensures a baby’s survival by forming a connection that provides resources (such as food), protection, and comfort. To investigage whether or not caregivers provided more than just food, Harry Harlow created two fake “mothers” to be used with baby rhesus monkeys. One mother was made of soft cloth but did not provide food and the other was made of wire but was offered food. Harlow discovered that the baby monkeys preferred the soft comfort of the cloth mother, and only quickly visited the wire monkey when they needed food. Additionally, in times of perceived danger the baby monkeys chose the cloth mother.
