We refute claims made by the Max Planck Institute for Biological Cybernetics regarding need for research on monkeys
Cruelty Free International has spoken out against the claims made by the Max Planck Institute for Biological Cybernetics (MPI) in Tübingen, Germany regarding the need for its research on monkeys.
- The value to human medicine of this kind of work on monkeys is no more than speculative
- There are important differences between monkeys and humans in brain structure and function
- The significance of results of ethical research on humans is being underestimated by researchers using monkeys
- Ethically conducted studies in humans are more than feasible—they already take place, and hundreds of studies have been conducted.
