    Opening Skinner 's Box, "Monkey Love" Lauren Slater introduced us to Harry Harlow, who was greatly known for experimenting with rhesus macaque monkeys and the way they expressed their feelings in regards to attachment (Slater 132). Slater explains the emotional indifference Harlow felt in relation to the monkeys.

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).
