      • 6. the monkey went over for food it kept one foot on the cloth for reassurance
    • Lorenz (1935)
      • Lorenz studied goslings to look at imprinting
      • 1. He separated gosling eggs into 2 groups
      • 2. One group were left with their mother and the other group was incubated
      • 3. When the incubated eggs hatched they took to Lorenz and started following him
      • 4. To test imprinting he marked the incubated gosling and put them with the other goslings and let them mix
      • 5. Next Lorenz let the goslings separate again
      • 6. the goslings separate into their two groups
