Original Summary:
"Shows Dr. Harry F. Harlow in his laboratory at the University of Wisconsin as he studies the infant-mother relationship. Using a large colony of new-born rhesus monkeys as subjects, Dr. Harlow tests their reactions to a variety of unusual and inanimate mother substitutes in order to find the key to the bond between mother and child and to understand the effects of denial of maternal love. He demonstrates through these experiments that the single most important factor is body contact, holding and nestling, and further concludes that deprivation of this can cause deep emotional disturbances, even death." - Summary from Worldcat.
