Animal-Related Research

| No Comments

In chapter two (Research Methods) of Psychology: From Inquiry to Understanding, one topic was Animal Research. The authors wrote about how there are ethical issues involved in animal research and that it is a controversial subject. However, the point that was made that really stood out to me was that "...animal research has led to direct benefit to humans, as well as immensely useful knowledge in its own right." (Lilienfeld pg. 69). Excellent examples of animal-related research that can benefit society can even be found here at the University of Minnesota. I encourage you to check out this link to an article and photo about the fistulated cow projects going on here at our school.
