DVD - Training Laboratory Primates (EUPRIM-Net):
The 15 minute video contains film clips of trained animals in research settings and demonstrates some of the potential uses of Positve Reinforcement Training (PRT). Each DVD includes an English and a French version, as well as subtitles in Italian, German and Dutch.
The DVD is offered only to primate facilities and not to the general public. If you submit an application, you will be required to sign a declaration about the use of the DVD and return it to us before distribution of the DVD. The application will be subject to approval by EUPRIM-Net. Apply here!
