Maybe the theories aren't always right!!

I need to share this news with everyone who is studying this course. This could be a break through for the attachment theory that we studied before.
Remember the monkey experiment by Harry Harlow? He concluded that baby monkey cannot grow up to be 'normal' without live mothers after the experiment.
If you want to read more about the baby monkey experiment, here is book that you can have a look, 'Child Development A First Course by Kathy Sylva & Ingrid Lunt publish in 2003, P15-P23

There is a medical research prove that he could be wrong.
this is the website that you can read the news, http://psychcentral.com/news/2008/11/11/incubator-care-reduces-depression-risk/3312.html
