    Radiation and its use in animal experimentation, tumour and organ transplantation and parabiosis, the use of hibernating animals, high altitude studies, experiments involving chronic centrifugation or exercise, methods of infection with bacteria, fungi or viruses, and electronic monitoring in physiological studies are described and pages. Alternative methods are also increasingly being used to train people involved in animal experiments. In Switzerland, the training required for the conduct of animal experiments is stipulated by law. Rodents (mice and rats) and rabbits are used for this training, to practice the different forms of application.

Well-controlled experiments generally provide strong evidence of causality, demonstrating whether the manipulation of one variable causes a response in another variable. For example, as early as the 6th century BCE, Anaximander, a Greek philosopher, speculated that life could be formed from a mixture of sea water, mud, and sunlight.

The ethical arguments against animal experimentation remain ever-strong. In addition, the scientific case against the use of animals in research grows more compelling, with exponential progress in the development of alternative methods and new research technologies.
