Storyboard Text

  • In most experiments, animals are used, rather than humans. This is good because she can learn from the animals because they are similar to us.
  • We do this so that humans are not harmed or distressed. We also keep the amount of distress and social isolation to a minimum, to not harm the animals
  • The species are selected carefully as not to cause too much harm. For example we would use animals that are used to contact with humans to help people overcome phobias, like Jones (1924), who used a rabbit that was used to human contact, not a wild animal
  • We also have to keep the numbers of animals subjected to the experiments to a minimum, for example, Mineka et al only used 6 monkeys, a small amount for an experiment
  • Although humans and animals are very similar, humans have more complex brains, and hence different ways of thinking.for example, we can learn by insight, whereas most animals don't.

  • !!!
  • However, we do learn lot about the animals we experiment on, which can be useful to both our knowledge of the animals and the animals themselves. So, in the end,both the animals and the experimenters end up winning.
