    The study of Harry Harlow really stood out to me. Harlow used a little monkey and two object that could represent the monkey’s mother. One of those objects was more closely related to a actually monkey. Monkeys have a sort of similarity to human nature. Thus by using the monkey Harlow was able to prove that babies do not actually get attached to whoever feed them. Nurturing goes over nourishment. I think it is really interesting, since people would tend to think that a monkey would prioritize food over nurturing. It might be a little surprising, but in case of danger the little monkey would actually seek comfort from his maternal figure despite the absence of food. I think it is very fascinating.
