In a laboratory at Rockefeller University in New York, two monkeys, known only as M1 and M2, spend their lives subjected to experiments designed to map the brain cells involved in facial recognition.

Through invasive experiments that turn living, sentient individuals into recording devices, M1 and M2, aged 8 and 7, have undergone multiple brain surgeries to insert cranial implants and an attached headpost, followed by surgeries to implant electrodes for fMRI guided electrophysiology studies.

Non-animal alternatives can teach us about the workings of the human brain and offer promise for human patients suffering from brain abnormalities.
