In the laboratory of Lynne Kiorpes at NYU's Center for Neural Science, young
macaque monkeys are experimented on to study visual function. Kiorpes and
her associates surgically damage the vision of monkeys -- some as young as 10
days old. Monkeys' eyes may be injected with a neurotoxin to paralyze the
muscles ... or the researchers cut and rearrange the eye muscles. The monkeys
have bolts and dental acrylic attached to their heads to immobilize them, and
coils are attached to their eyes to trace the eyes' movements. The research
methods are limited only by the vivisectors' crude and hideous imaginations.

These and other outrageous experiments take place daily at NYU.

Meanwhile..each year in the US, over 20 million animals are subjected to the
horrors of scientific research.

Who will speak out for them?
