pretty much they are so much alike that they can use them for testing of drugs and experiments.
its plain ignorance to not acknowledge the facts.
No. I have just completed a psychology course and all the way through the text books studies have been discredited because they assumed that studies on animals would provide accurate results for the effects on humans. Our brains are somewhat similar to theirs, I'll grant you that. But ours include scope to carry out "executive functions" (ie prediction, planning etc) We cannot be sure that human brains would react in the same way. End of. To say otherwise is theorising ahead of evidence.
