The desired effects are sometimes achieved by forcing the primates into immobilization devices for extended periods of time, with individual sessions lasting a maximum of two hours each, for up to seven consecutive days. According to the Davis Center's official FAQ on its website, the Animal Welfare Act "requires that any procedures causing more than slight or momentary discomfort be performed using appropriate pain-relieving drugs." Thus, the procedures that deliberately cause physiological and/or psychological stress seem to be in violation of the spirit, if not the letter, of the Animal Welfare Act.<br> + <br> + However, there is controversy as to what the "letter" even is. As the American Humane Society puts it, "Unfortunately, the regulations of the Animal Welfare Act include a definition of 'painful procedure' but not of 'distress' or 'distressful procedure.'" In 2000, the U.S. Department of Agriculture called on the public and the research community to comment on possible adoption of a definition of distress and to change the current pain and distress categorization system used by researchers to report to the USDA ([http://www.hsus.org/animals_in_research/pain_distress/faq_pain_and_distress.html source]). In the absence of a definition of distress, this aspect of the Animal Welfare Act is, unfortunately, unenforceable. Nonetheless, the Davis researchers continually state that no primates experience "pain or distress" without anesthesia within their facility, even though causing the primates stress is the means through which the studies are conducted.<br> + <br> + [http://www.jneurosci.org/cgi/content/full/27/28/7386 Another study] began by surgically creating lesions in the brains of rhesus monkeys, in an area of the brain known as the ''amygdala''. The experimenters then tried to induce fear in the monkeys, who were restrained in a custom-built primate chair within an isolation booth capable of creating total darkness, with bursts of air, white noise, and sudden flashes of light. The experimenters then performed the same fear induction methods on non-surgically altered monkeys (so that the monkeys would learn the fear startle response) to see if the fear startle response continued after the monkeys ''had'' been surgically altered. The stated goal of the study was to determine the role of the amygdala in acquiring, retaining, and expressing a "fear-potentiated startle." There seems to be a real question as to whether this end justifies the suffering of the monkeys.<br> + <br> + Some people believe that the actions of the Davis Center are ethically problematic even if they are not illegal. It is clear that the primates are suffering; after all, the stated aim of some studies is to measure the effects of fear or stress, and they must be suffering to some extent if they are feeling fear or under stress. Reasons for believing these actions are unethical include: the belief that testing on any animal that can experience pain is unethical; believing that testing on animals of higher intelligence in particular (e.g., primates, dolphins) is unethical; or the belief that there may be some cases where the benefits of animal (or primate) testing outweigh the harms, but that the potential benefits of these ''particular'' experiments do not outweigh the harms caused.</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> California National Primate Research Centerhttp://daviswiki.org/California_National_Primate_Research_Center2010-05-25 13:19:07ScottMeehleibadding cage dimensions <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for California National Primate Research Center<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 20: </td> <td> Line 20: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> <span>-</span> *Self-abuse is a common problem among primates at the Davis Center.

Which for obvious reasons are rather hard to ethically test on humans. In addition, most drugs on the market for epilepsy also come from primate research. I am not sure how to link to the scientific papers since if you can't see them without a membership. But if you google these two things you should find a fair amount of abstracts on these research subjects. This type of research can't be done on cell culture since it requires multiple organ systems and other animal models (such as mice) are too physically different from us in terms of birth process and brain function to be good research models. I would be happy to give more info if people are interested. --["Users/Zeeba"]</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> California National Primate Research Centerhttp://daviswiki.org/California_National_Primate_Research_Center2009-04-24 01:40:50AprilAries <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for California National Primate Research Center<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 54: </td> <td> Line 54: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> </td> <td> <span>+ <br> + Of course, this also means you are entitled to to call them crazies, if that is your opinion! --["Users/aprilaries"]</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> California National Primate Research Centerhttp://daviswiki.org/California_National_Primate_Research_Center2009-04-24 01:36:45AprilAries <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for California National Primate Research Center<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 51: </td> <td> Line 51: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> </td> <td> <span>+ <br> + I don't think you need to resort to calling people crazy just for protesting (as long as it is carried out legally), nor do I think it is reasonable to wish they would be wiped out.

I believe UCLA isn't the only UC to now refuse to respond to certain requests filed under the Freedom of Information act, due to aforementioned issues (home vandalism (from graffiti, flooding, or fire), car bombings, etc). In full context though, the quote was ""Primates aren't subject to HIV," Budkie said. "You can't study a human disease in a different species."" That's likely a purposefully misleading statement. It is true that they aren't subject to HIV, but SIV is virtually the same thing. There are some differences between HIV and SIV in general, and you can't really cross-infect humans, chimps, and macaque's for example with the same strains (the data on why only came out a few years ago, it's really really interesting). Furthermore, there's lab strains like SHIV that are almost like a combined version, and etc. There's so much to learn. The concept that you can't learn about HIV from SIV is ludicrously incorrect, much less "human" diseases. -["users/Edwins" ES]</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> California National Primate Research Centerhttp://daviswiki.org/California_National_Primate_Research_Center2009-04-23 12:24:53condemned2bfreeComment added. <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for California National Primate Research Center<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 48: </td> <td> Line 48: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> </td> <td> <span>+ ------<br> + ''2009-04-23 12:24:53'' [[nbsp]] I wish all the crazies who protested these facilities would stop accepting pharmaceuticals.
