Much of brain research you have read about in this chapter was carried out using animals. In many studies, it is necessary to euthanize animals to study their brain tissue directly. Many people object to this practice, but others say it is justified because it advances knowledge about the brain. Prepare an argument to support one of the following positions:

a. The use of animals in brain research projects is ethical and justifiable because of possible benefits to humankind.

b. The use of animals in brain research projects is not ethical or justifiable on the grounds of possible benefits to humankind?
