Four Rhesus monkeys and three baboons, all young adult males of nearly the same size (8-17 kg), were implanted with an accelerometer on the upper thoracic and lower lumbar spinous process, respectively. Each animal was exposed to sinusoidal vibrations from 4 to 50 Hz at +/- 0.177 and 0.283 rms GZ acceleration levels, respectively, for approximately 30 s… (More)
