The apes first underwent a lobotomy and then were put into a total isolation.  This experiment also made use of the radio frequency being transmitted into the brainwaves that was cultivated by Leonard Rubenstein.  Apes that were able to pick-up the signal of the radio frequency were decapitated.  Their head was also transplanted into the body of a dead ape and see if they were able to pick up the radio frequency, reanimating them in the process.
