Slater explains the emotional indifference Harlow felt in relation to the monkeys. Harlow only cared to prove that he was to be the greatest at what he did, experimenting with monkeys and proving that they would be able to love a surrogate mother. Harlow 's idea was to figure out if the newborn monkeys would prefer the feeding surrogate mother made out of wire or the cloth made surrogate mother who had nothing else to offer other than comfort. Surprisingly the newborns were far more attached to the cloth surrogate than to the surrogate mother who was made out of cold wire but was able to feed them.

This all changed as the rhesus macaque monkeys grew to a mature age and it was time for mating, the grown cloth-mothered monkeys turned into vicious antisocial creatures (Slater 144). I was not surprised by this discovery, these monkeys were expected to mate when they had never had any physical contact with anyone or anything before yet they were expected to not only share their cages with another monkey but their bodies as well.…

The thing that is unique about these two is where the foramen magnum is located at. For apes, monkeys, and similar animals, the magnum is toward the back of the skull, whereas…
