When I read through Chapter 10 one of the phenomena's that sparked interest in me was contact comfort. Most people, including myself, usually think that a baby will be attracted to the person who feeds it or gives it its wonderful toys. According to Harry Harlow's pioneering research in the late 1950's on rhesus monkeys, he showed that infants will not just cling to a figure for nourishment but cling for comfort. I found his research interesting so I decided to go a bit deeper into it.
Harlow's research also experimented with how a comforting inanimate object (like a terry cloth mother) can build up the confidence and social satiability of these monkeys, even to the point where the monkeys "love" their surrogate mothers. He would show the preference for a terry cloth mother by having two separate monkey infants exposed to a fear stimulus and having the choice to run behind a wall to escape or to a terry cloth mother still in sight of the stimulus. The monkey that had grown up with the terry cloth mother would immediately run towards it rather than an infant that grew up with no mother ran to the obscured corner rocking.
These behaviors would be consistent with those like dogs and how their owners treat them. If you own a dog and only feed him and deny attention and affection like petting then the dog will be more likely to not grow attached to you and would easily become very anti-social or develop social problems such as extreme aggression towards other dogs and people. Of course that is what I think could be the cause and there could be other factors that play a role such as maybe the monkeys were operant conditioned to the mother; that could be misinterpreted at "love" and so many other variables.
