Animal Models of Human Psychology contributes to the debate on our treatment of nonhuman animals in research by providing an empirical method for evaluating the benefits of the research and the costs to the animals. The usual "costs-to-the animal vs. human-benefits" arguments simply have not been based on empirical findings. But they could be. By offering additional science-based methods of evaluation, the book attempts to make the case against animal-based research stronger.
