• the fact that imprinting is most certain to occur

  • Answers
  • during a critical period of development in the organism's lifespan. Imprinting, which is an acquired behavior whereby animals develop a preference for certain stimuli due to early exposure, is known to be most successful if the exposure occurs during a window of time known as the "critical period". During this time, the animal is more likely to become attached to the stimulus and form an imprint. After the critical period ends, it becomes increasingly difficult or impossible for the animal to learn the behavior through imprinting.
