Animal models in Brain Research

For practically every known human disease, researchers attempt to induce similar aspects of the disease in animals to create an animal model. Animals are used as models of traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, congenital blindness, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s and etc. Researchers frequently use rabbits in toxicity and safety testing of medical devices, vaccines, and drugs.

In 2009, over 222,000 rabbits were used in research, more than any other species covered under the Animal Welfare Act, followed next by guinea pigs and hamsters, who are both used a great deal in toxicity testing and as models for infectious, cardiovascular, and neurological diseases, and drug abuse research. Both mice and rats are heavily used in vaccine and drug research and testing, and birds are used in research on organ development and deformity, visual impairment, muscular dystrophy, and nutrition, among other things.
