Harry Harlow's Monkey Experiement, comfort v. food

In this video it shows Harry Harlow's monkey experiment, where the wire "mother" has food and the cloth mother does not. In his experiment it showed although the wire mother had food the baby monkey perfered the cloth mother. This is because babies look for comfort and safety with in their mom. This goes to show that comfort overrides everything else in a babies relationship with its mother.
