abstract
The goal of the current research is to systematically evaluate several components needed to develop a monkey model of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). For this dissertation, the aspects of PTSD investigated included sleep disturbance, cognitive disruptions and drug abuse. These studies used Old World macaques, rhesus monkeys, because of their close phylogeny to humans, their similar sleep-wake patterns and their cognitive abilities.
