Scientific research on primates: what do we owe animals like us?

Scientific research on primates: what do we owe animals like us? | Animals Bonobos | Scoop.it
Some countries have banned the use of an important group of primates, the great apes – gorilla, orang-utan, chimpanzee and bonobo – in research altogether. New Zealand granted apes the right to not be used in research, ...
florence eaise's insight:

No animals should ever be used in medical research testing or experiments as there are now human simulators that are 100% accurate while when using animals 9 out of every 10 medicines that are approved threw medical testing research & experiments go on to FAIL in human use so human simulators would be the better more humane accurate way to go however hunan simulators are expensive which is the draw back & the fact that studies conducted with the human simulator can not be manipulated as with in animals also a thing to consider is that NO animals are ever given pain mmedication regardless how much they are suffering because it would interfere with the results my guess it has more to do with the money it always does

Sign of empathy: Bonobos comfort friends in distress

Sign of empathy: Bonobos comfort friends in distress | Animals Bonobos | Scoop.it

Bonobos display consolation behavior, a sign of sensitivity to the emotions of others and the ability to take the perspective of another.

 

Comforting a friend or relative in distress may be a more hard-wired behavior than previously thought, according to a new study of bonobos, which are great apes known for their empathy and close relation to humans and chimpanzees. This provides key evolutionary insight into how critical social skills may develop in humans. The results were published by the journal PLOS One.

 

Researchers from the Yerkes National Primate Research Center, Emory University, observed juvenile bonobos at the Lola ya Bonobo sanctuary in the Democratic Republic of Congo engaging in consolation behavior more than their adult counterparts. Juvenile bonobos (3 to 7 years old) are equivalent in age to preschool or elementary school-aged children.
