A rhesus monkey infant in one of Harlow's isolation chambers..
Much of Harlow's scientific career was spent studying maternal bonding, what he described as the "nature of love".. These experiments involved rearing newborn monkeys with surrogate mothers, ranging from toweling-covered cones to a machine that modeled abusive mothers by assaulting the baby monkeys with cold air or spikes..The point of the experiments was to pinpoint the basis of the mother-child relationship, namely whether the infant primarily sought food or affection. Harlow concluded it was the latter..In contrast to the ABO blood group, immunization against RH can generally only occur through blood transfusion or placental exposure during pregnancy in women..Rh derives from rhesus and the terms rhesus blood group system, rhesus factor, rhesus positive & rhesus negative are also used..

Unnecessary Fuss USA ..

The footage was shot in 1983–84 by the researchers themselves as they inflicted brain damage on baboons with a hydraulic device..The experiments were conducted as part of a research project into head injuries caused by vehicle and sports Incidents..The footage shows the researchers laughing at the baboons as the brain damage is inflicted..A hydraulic device known as Penn 2 slams the baboon's head from behind, pushing it forward at a 60-degree angle with a force of what the researchers said was up to 1000 g, apparently intended to simulate whiplash..One sequence shows part of the baboon's ear being torn off along with the helmet.. After pulling the baboon's head from the helmet, the researcher is heard to laugh, saying: "It's a boy," then, "Looks like I left a little ear behind"..

The rhesus blood type named after the rhesus monkey was first discovered in 1937 by Karl Landsteiner and Alexander S. Wiener..The significance of the discovery was not immediately apparent and was only realized in 1940, after subsequent findings by Philip Levine and Rufus Stetson..This serum that led to the discovery was produced by immunizing rabbits with red blood cells from a rhesus macaque..The antigen that induced this immunization was designated by them as Rh factor to indicate that rhesus blood had been used for the production of the serum..An individual either has, or does not have, the "Rh factor" on the surface of their red blood cells... always think... ape better than human..I see now... how much like them we are..and how I love you talking monkeys for this..know more about war and treachery...
