American Psychological Association
Research with Animals in Psychology - "Psychologists undertake research with animals '...with a clear scientific purpose.' ...There should be a reasonable expectation that the research will a) increase knowledge of the processes underlying the evolution, development, maintenance, alteration, control, or biological significance of behavior, b) increase understanding of the species under study, or c) provide results that benefit the health or welfare of humans or other animals." (APA Guidelines for Ethical Conduct in the Care and Use of Animals, Section VI.A.)
