Heath, M. 1989. The training of cynomolgus monkeys and how the human/animal relationship improves with environmental and mental enrichment. Animal Technology 40(1), 11-22.

This paper will attempt to show the marked improvement in behaviour of a small group of female cynomolgus monkeys, after a period of routine training and human interaction. A relatively short, but predictable, course of routine handling and feeding enabled the monkeys to co-operate with their handlers and made working practices a lot easier, quicker and safer for both the animals and technicians.
