Fish can't feel pain ?
Okay, after the last few days of copyright wars (Wright did want a conflict
to liven up the winter) we need something else to stir the pot. Heres one
that I am read this morning..
In one of the Chicago Sunday newspapers there is an article quoting a
report published in the Reviews of Fisheries Sciences that:
"fish cannot feel pain. The largest study of piscine neurology, comparing
the nervous systems and responses of fish and mammals, has found that their
brains are not sufficiently developed to allow them to sense pain or
fear..... The study concluded that awareness of pain depends on functions
of specific region of the cerebral cortex that fish do no possess. "
The study was authored by James Rose a professor of zoology and physiology.
