abstract
Over the last century, the race towards interventional treatments and cures for neurological diseases has only picked up speed. While great strides have been made, highly translatable research models are still desperately needed as we watch drug trial after trial fail due in large part to our lack of models that reflect disease processes in humans. Fortunately, modern science and medicine have imparted important discoveries that may lead us further in the right direction. With their genetic similarity to humans, nonhuman primate (NHP) models have been invaluable in this quest, with applications of monkey models of disease growing exponentially over the last few decades and continuing to deliver useful results. However, the methodologies with which we study any primates are likely large contributors to our shortcomings. Two crucial criteria a good research platform must meet are
