In the 70s an American

In the 70s an American psychologist named Harry Harlow designed an experiment to test maternal bonding using primates. What he did was take infant macaques separating them from their mothers and placed them in a cage. the cage was fitted with two mannequin the scale of an adult mother from taxidermist Carthage NY. One of the models was a wire skeleton or wire surrogate mother that has a feeding bottle of milk attached to the mammary regions, and the second model was a soft cloth surrogate which did not have a feeding bottle but was covered in soft cloth of fur like material. The experiment was to see which mother the infant would prefer. it was observed that the infant spend majority of its time cuddling the cloth mother, and approached the wire surrogate only when it was hungry.
