    These are really great questions! I am not sure about the answer to the first one. I think it depends on the kind of animal, and what exactly the benefits to humans would be. It is complicated – I have been reading a lot of brain science research and unfortunately, much of what we know is predicated on research done on primates.
    With regards to number 2, I don’t think it is possible. Even though I sometimes think parenting is a huge experiment, I don’t think we actually see our children as experiments. Richard is only fooling himself if he thinks otherwise.
