Choice version with the soft mum and the hard-headed mum (with food) (look
slides)
No choice version & scary stimuli
If monkeys have choices, they will only go to the hard headed mums for food
but if not hungry, will stay to the soft mum
If monkeys were scared, they will run to the soft monkeys not to the mum with
food
If you make the loud noise with the only hard headed mother with food, the
monkey will not run to the mother not like the soft mums
Monkeys feel security to the soft mum
One interpretation of this:
o Early social experience with caregiver
o Attachment close relationship to caregiver
o Marked by separation anxiety (from 8 months)
o Have an effect on children’s social functioning
o Attachment of mum to child has something to do with the child’s understanding to
social relationships
