Abstract : One male rhesus monkey (Macaca mulatta) was exposed to NOSET-A aerosol for 4 hours at a concentration of 2.4 ppm. Visual evoked response and Sidman avoidance task (free operant avoidance) data were collected after 2 hours and 4 hours of exposure. The visual evoked response was not affected, but a significant increase in response rate on the Sidman avoidance task occurred.
