Animal Models for Brain Research

  • José M. R. Delgado


Many biological mechanisms investigated in animals yield results applicable to man. Enzymatic functions are shared by microorganisms as well as by human beings. Respiratory properties of hemoglobin are similar in mice, whales, and man. Basic knowledge of nerve physiology has been obtained from frogs and squid.
