Abstract: We examined behavioral features of isochronous repetitive movements in two macaques. The monkeys were required to press a button repetitively in response to external cues. If the cue-intervals were constant (isochronous) and sub-second, the reaction time was shorter than in random-interval condition. In contrast, in the supra-second isochronous conditions, the reaction time was not different from random-interval condition. The results suggest that the monkeys can acquire isochronous rhythms if the intervals are sub-second, probably depending on the automatic timing system. However, the conscious timing system for supra-second intervals is not well developed in monkeys, unlike humans.
