Abstract : Rhesus monkeys (M. Mulatta) were trained to maintain a primate equilibrium platform in a relatively horizontal position by a control stick. Training procedure consisted of seven phases. Progression from one phase to the next was contingent on successful completion of the current phase. Criterion for success was defined for each phase.
