Animals In Research
This week, the Department of Psychology received a number of post cards, phone calls and emails from individuals opposed to research being conducted by Professor David Jentsch and his students. They expressed their objection to the use of animals in this research, which is on the biological bases of various forms of mental illness. They claim that the work is bad science and does not need to be done on animals. We believe that both assertions are incorrect.
