Abstract

Animal models are used in a wide variety of behavioral and biomedical research beacause they allow control of extraneous, confounding variables to a degree that is not possible with human subjects. The use of animal models also allows the researcher to perform experimental manipulations that, for ethical or practical reasons, are not practical in humans.
