In the laboratory of Lynne Kiorpes at NYU's Center for
Neural Science, young
macaque monkeys are experimented on to study visual function. Kiorpes
her associates surgically damage the vision of monkeys -- some as young
days old. Monkeys' eyes may be injected with a neurotoxin to paralyze
muscles ... or the researchers cut and rearrange the eye muscles. The
have bolts and dental acrylic attached to their heads to immobilize
coils are attached to their eyes to trace the eyes' movements. The
methods are limited only by the vivisectors' crude and hideous
These and other outrageous experiments take place daily
Meanwhile..each year in the US, over 20 million animals
are subjected to the
horrors of scientific research.
Who will speak out for them?
