Volkswagen helped fund a study conducted by a third-party research group that subjected 10 monkeys to nitrogen dioxide exposure.

Details on the study were released as part of a lawsuit filed against VW in the United States, which was subsequently covered by The New York Times on Thursday. The tests, which were conducted by the US-based Lovelace Respiratory Research Institute in 2014, saw 10 cynomolgus macaque monkeys placed in air-tight chambers as they watched cartoons to keep them entertained. A dieselVW Beetle was then put on a roller, where a machine drew exhaust fumes from the tailpipe and fed it into a container. The fumes were then diluted and pumped into the chambers where the monkeys were.
