  6. 6. Animals (Scientific Procedures) Act (1986) • Procedures: procedures used during research should not cause pain and discomfort to animals, and they should avoid causing death to any animals where possible. • Choice of Species: animals used for research purposes should be chosen to ensure that the species being studied is likely to suffer as little as possible. • Number of Animals: psychologists must use the smallest number of animals possible in their research so that the effects are kept to a minimum. • Housing and animal care: when using animals, psychologists must be sure to keep them in settings as similar to their natural habitat as possible. If they live in groups, they must be caged in groups. If they normally live in wide, open spaces, they should be caged the same way.
