This week on The Method Section, Tom takes a look at ethics in the research environment. Have you ever wondered what ethics process each scientist goes through when applying to conduct an experiment? Or how the ethics board decides which experiments are ethically valid? More than this Tom dives head first into the heated topic of using captive animals in experiments with a heavy focus on captive dolphins. Are they too smart for captivity or is there some benefit to using them in experiments? Music by: Joakim Karud - https://soundcloud.com/joakimkarud.
