Components of this Hardware
Three commercial skin temperature (Tsk) thermistors affixed to the monkey's ankle, thigh, and temple recorded skin temperature. A thermistor located on the lower half of the monkey's safety seat measured ambient temperature in the capsule. A motor activity sensor built into a flexible band on the animal's jacket measured activity when body movement caused the band to flex.
