Most monkey studies have examined only limited types of stereotypical movements in laboratory settings. To obtain a more comprehensive view of neural population activity, we trained monkeys to perform tasks both in a traditional laboratory environment and in a large plastic cage, using wireless techniques to gather extensive neural recordings. Employing effective computational tools, we identified significant clustering patterns in these recordings, revealing an organized landscape of neural manifolds across various real-world motor behaviors.
