Model Organisms
August 2016

The beating heart at the center of so many groundbreaking biological, medical, and psychological studies may not be a human's, but that of a rodent, a bird, even a fish or an insect. These essential collaborators rarely have an opportunity to add their thoughts to lab reports, so instead, we offer them our inaugural edition of Labocine to tell their stories. Here, we'll experience the perceptions of microbes, watch films made for and by non-human primates, travel with invertebrates investigating the human world, and see classic cognitive studies through the eyes of their subjects.

Each model organism has its own advantages and disadvantages. Choosing an appropriate model depends on the question being asked. Here is a artistic representation - the higher order species sitting on top of a large bacteria. Artwork by Alexis Gambis
