The Denny-Brown collection consists of films depicting the behavioral responses of ∼450 monkeys after central nervous system lesions; operative, behavioral, and neuropathologic descriptions; and histologic slides. This collection is available for use by interested investigators. This report describes one case, DC60, to provide an example of the types of material that are available and how these materials might be used better to understand the nervous system. To demonstrate how precisely the actual lesions can be defined and compared with the planned ablations, this report also includes a detailed evaluation of the extent of the lesions made in this case, based on the histologic slides and on photographs of the brain taken before histologic processing.
