Abstract There has been considerable research into the
ability of nonhuman primates to process sequential infor-
mation, a topic that is of interest in part because of the
extensive involvement of sequence processing in human
language use. Surprisingly, no previous study has unambig-
uously tested the ability of nonhuman primates to encode
and immediately reproduce a novel temporal sequence of
perceptual events, the ability tapped in the immediate serial
recall (ISR) task extensively studied in humans. We report
here the performance of a rhesus macaque on a spatial ISR
