Stephen Lisberger performs insane experiments on primates at the University of California-San Francisco. He locks macaque monkets down in restraint chairs, and performs highly invasive brain mapping on the animals, complete with electrodes inserted into their exposed brains.
"Our experiments are conducted in awake, behaviorally trained rhesus monkeys and entail quantitative assessment of motor performance, extracellular recording from single brain cells during eye movement, theory based analyses of neural and behavioral data, and computational analyses of models that are based on biological observations."
