Lorenz was fascinated by this phenomenon, and it led him to experiment with imprinting in order to determine both how this happens and the effects it can have.

You will recall from from an earlier section that: "In Lorenz's model motivation increases with the passage of time. For example, a key ethologist from the attachment topic in Year 1 Psychology is Konrad Lorenz (1966) who used the behaviour of geese to explain attachment in humans.
