Changes to laws and regulations in relation to animal experimentation are leading to bans and restrictions in the EU, India and Columbia. The FDA no longer requires all drugs to be tested on animal before human trials.

The Human Brain Project is coming to an end. It failed to achieve massive conceptual breakthroughs but it did produce 3D maps of 200 brain structures. A Human Brain Atlas was created, accessible through EBRAINS depicting multilevel organization of the brain. ( A little like Google Maps but for the brain) Clinical applications of the new findings have led to improved treatments for epilepsy and Parkinson’s disease.

Andrew Knight, author of the ground-breaking book, The costs and benefits of animal experiments has developed a website: which provides resources to guide students who wish to conscientiously object to harmful animal use in this education.
