During this study, psychology professionals create case studies with mothers and newborns. They will document behavior that is common to the subjects.
During the first year of life, mothers provide all of their child's necessities, including food, shelter, and love. Psychologists observe a mother nursing her child during different phases of his life. They note how the pair interacts and expressions of love.
The experiment follows the lives of four children who lost their mothers and did not receive an adequate substitute for motherly love. Note the children's reactions; researchers explain how the children developed following trauma.
