Attachment studies using animalsWatch
What could be improved on animal studies other than ethics? For example, the ethology Konrad Lorenz’s (1981) study using geese and Harlow (1958) study using rhesus macaque monkeys. I understand that one involves ‘imprinting’ and the other used surrogate mothers (inanimate) to understand attachments using non-human animals. Any thoughts??
You can't generalise animal studies to human populations for example as an evaluation point. They're also small sample sizes too.
But also, within ethics there are more specific things. E.g. consent, psychological harm etc on the animals.
