[Last Name] 1 a) How does John Bowlby define Attachment? Is it an inborn (biological) system or a learned (cultural, environmental, taught) system according to Bowlby? Do you agree/disagree with his conclusion? Do you think our need for another (attachment) follows us into adult relationships? Briefly explain. John Bowlby defines attachment as a built-in or innate need to be close to a significant other support, protection, and survival. He believes it is inborn (biological). I do agree with John Bowlby; we attach to people that make us feel safe. And the first person we attach to is our parents. So yes I believe it is also biological. I think that attachment does follow us to adulthood. I know that I’m attached to my husband and children. They are my comfort place, my home. b) According to Sarah Jayne-Blackmore's findings on adolescent brain development, our frontal lobes (inhibition, impulse control, judgement) as teens are still developing while our reward and risk-taking system is in high gear.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
