The U.S. Air Force study of the delayed effects of single, total body exposures to simulated space radiation in rhesus monkeys is now in its 21st year. Observations on 301 irradiated and 57 age-matched control animals indicate that life expectancy loss from exposure to protons in the energy range encountered in the Van Allen belts and solar proton events(More)
A three-light, three-lever discrete avoidance behavioral task was initiated to study the effects of a 500-675 rad neutron pulse upon performance. Eight primates performed the task for 4 h (3.5 h postexposure) on exposure day and for 4 h on each of 3 d postexposure. For the exposure day, five subjects had a decrease in correct responses, seven had increased(More)
Five Macaca mulatta were tested for performance changes following exposure to benactyzine HCl (intramuscular) at four doses ranging from 0.054 mg/kg to 1.7 mg/kg. Subjects simultaneously operated a primate equilibrium platform and responded to a multiple alternative reaction task. Performance on both the continuous and discrete tasks were progressively(More)
A discrete behavioral task was initiated to study the effects of a 300-rad variable dose rate exposure profile upon positively (food reward) and negatively (mild shock) reinforced groups of primates. Animals performed the task for 12 h. Performance decrements were readily apparent in 2 of 8 shock and 2 of 7 food animals, while delayed reaction times were(More)
