Cecilia Heyes – 1st expert on this subject based on the ideXlab platform

  • psychology students beliefs about Animals and Animal Experimentation
    Personality and Individual Differences, 1993
    Co-Authors: Adrian Furnham, Cecilia Heyes

    Abstract:

    Abstract This study set out to ascertain the beliefs and knowledge about Animals and Animal Experimentation of over 200 students all applying to read psychology at University. The subjects completed a modified and extended version of the Furnham and Pinder (1990, The Psychologists, 10, 444–448) attitude to Animals scale. They also indicated their knowledge about the amount and type of Experimentation done in Great Britain. Finally they indicated what they believed that six groups of Animals (rodents, cats, primates, insects, birds and dogs) were capable of, in terms of thought (e.g. ‘what another Animal is thinking’; ‘what happened to them yesterday’) emotion (e.g. ‘happiness’; ‘sadness’; ‘joy’) and behaviour (e.g. ‘unselfishly’; ‘dishonourably’). The results were similar to those reported by Furnham and Pinder (1990) but subjects’ knowledge of Experimentation was poor.

Gerhard Zbinden – 2nd expert on this subject based on the ideXlab platform

  • alternatives to Animal Experimentation developing in vitro methods and changing legislation
    Trends in Pharmacological Sciences, 1990
    Co-Authors: Gerhard Zbinden

    Abstract:

    Despite recent changes in legislation in several countries and general reduction in the use of Animals in biomedical research, the impatience of antivivisectionists to see reductions in Animal Experimentation shows no signs of abating. Gerhard Zbinden analyses the reasons for this continuing dissatisfaction, arguing that real progress has been made in biomedical research, but that the complexities of developing internationally recognized regulations constitute a barrier to rapid change in product safety testing methods.
