The monkey, Macaca nemestrina, is considered with a view to it's possible value as a research animal. Compared with the commonly used Macaca mulatta it appears to have a more developed cerebral cortex, is much more easily tamed and handled, is more readily adaptable to training techniques and has a more highly developed hand combined with great manual skill. These advantages and its great general hardiness, it's ability to stand cortical operations, it's visual acuity, gustatory and olfactory sensitivity, docility, amiability, and it's ability to understand verbal commands, make M. nemestrina an excellent subject for psychological and psycho-physiological research. It can also be bred successfully in captivity.
