In this chapter a few of the contributions of such studies in biomedical and behavioral research will be chronicled. These descriptions should be viewed within the context of the vast improvements in human health and understanding that have   the use of animals in the study of complex interactions in basic biomedical research. It is less complex to develop non-animal methods in more applied toxicological research than for basic biomedical research. In particular cell culture based systems are already widely used in applied toxicological research.
