What Rosenblum and his colleagues (Rosenblum and Paully, 1984; Andrews and Rosenblum, 1991) did was simply to change the way food was offered to the monkey mothers of young infants. In addition to the usual laboratory situation in which food was always freely available (low foraging demand), another condition was created (high foraging demand) in which the food crackers were buried in 6 inches of wood shavings in pans behind a number of different access holes. There was always enough food, but in the high-foraging-demand situation, it required that the monkey mothers spend a total of about 2 hours of the day searching to obtain the food, a minimal total time requirement.
