Abstract:

This report summarizes the findings of a review of studies of the effects of ionizing radiation on the task performances of primates. This review indicates that muscular and cognitive performance are more sensitive to radiation effects than are sensory-perceptual or psychomotor performances. Within performance domains greater performance decrements were found to occur with higher exposure levels. A need is indicated for future research to expand the range of exposure levels and the performance tasks employed. Author
