Monkey Abusers of the Week
Stephen Lisberger

Our first Monkey Abuser of the Week for the Water Project is Stephen Lisberger of the University of California, San Francisco. Lisberger’s work is described in details here on the Experimental Description page. In brief his experimentation bolts recording cylinders and a restraining bar to the top of a primate’s head. Wire coils are also implanted near the eye.

The primates are deprived of water to “motivate” them to participate in experimentation that involves visual stimuli.

Water or Tang is used as a reward, when the rhesus monkey performs the experiment while confined in a restraint chair with the monkey’s head literally bolted in place.

This experiment is barbaric in nature. One of the cruelest parts of this experiment is the practice of depriving intelligent primates of water for extended periods of time. UCSF experimental procedures are known to deprive primates of water for as much as 22 consecutive hours, five days per week.

Please contact Steven Lisberger and demand that he immediately end this practice of depriving primates of water. This should never be done in any laboratory anywhere. Don’t take no for an answer. Call him often. Email him regularly. His research is funded with federal grants from the National Institutes of Health. This is your tax money. You have a right to express your opinion to him.
