Abstract : This project is presently in progress. Two cynomolgus macques (Macacca fascicularis) have undergone craniotomy and rigid fixation of the frontal bone and supraorbital bar of the skull. Ten were non-human primates have been in quarantine and will be released for surgery in Oct 92. The remainder of the non-human primates will be arriving intermittently and undergo quarantine prior to surgery. The initial two non-human primates underwent general anesthesia and surgery and presently are doing very well, gaining weight, and maturing appropriately....
