After an Injury, These Primates Will Lend a Helping Hand

After a traumatic brain or spinal cord injury, the simplest tasks can become daunting. At Helping Hands, capuchin monkeys are trained to help people with disabilities regain their independence and confidence. The capuchins spend between three to five years at "monkey college" where they learn simple tasks before joining up with people. This is no urban legend; these primates are making a real difference.
