This chapter analyzes the behavioral biases seen among different laboratory rodent strains to determine whether these biases are associated with physiological and/or health biases, and the extent to which these relationships provide a basis for understanding the relationship between human personality and health. It also addresses the importance of animal research on personality, physiology, and health for a better understanding of human personality and health.

Keywords:   behavioral biases, rodent strains, physiological biases, health biases, human personality, animal research
