Concluding Remarks

  • Borje Cronholm


Being a clinical psychiatrist, I have not performed any animal experiments. I have, however, been reading about animal experimentation with much interest. Given Hinde’s highly skeptical and critical remarks (elsewhere in this volume) as regards drawing conclusions about human behavior from animal experimentation, I feel a little reluctant to elaborate on this interest. All the same, I take the risk and give a few examples.
