"It is hard to imagine how brain prosthetics and brain-machine interfaces, which are tantalizingly close to realization, could be properly developed without the support of fundamental primate studies."

An editorial in the 20th November edition of Nature 2008 included comment on primate studies in neurological research:

"Primates such as macaque monkeys are essential for such work given the similarity of their brains to our own. If we don't understand how brains  function in health we will not come close to finding out how to fix brains in disease.  It is hard to imagine how brain prosthetics and brain-machine interfaces, which are tantalizingly close to realization, could be properly developed without the support of fundamental primate studies."
