Cerebrospinal fluid bathes the brain and spinal cord and acts as a cushion to protect these areas. CSF leaks occur through a communication between the lining of the brain and the nose. These communications may occur spontaneously or result from trauma or prior sinonasal surgery. Complications may occur if the cause is surgery or trauma. Infections after surgery or trauma can lead to meningitis and serious complications, such as swelling of the brain. Most CSF leaks are a complication of a spinal tap or surgery.

Drug addiction is a brain disease that is characterized by compulsive drug seeking, despite of its harmful consequences. It causes changes in the normal activity of the nervous system damaging the nerve tissues, killing neurons and this leads to dysregulation of neural system. Thus uncontrolled drug use results in toxicity of brain. Some of the behavioral effects of drug addiction include Paranoia, Aggressiveness, Impulsiveness, and Loss of Self-Control. Prescription drugs that are often abused are sleep medicines and opioids.

For practically every known human disease, researchers attempt to induce similar aspects of the disease in animals to create an animal model. Animals are used as models of traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, congenital blindness, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s and etc. Researchers frequently use rabbits in toxicity and safety testing of medical devices, vaccines, and drugs.

In 2009, over 222,000 rabbits were used in research, more than any other species covered under the Animal Welfare Act, followed next by guinea pigs and hamsters, who are both used a great deal in toxicity testing and as models for infectious, cardiovascular, and neurological diseases, and drug abuse research. Both mice and rats are heavily used in vaccine and drug research and testing, and birds are used in research on organ development and deformity, visual impairment, muscular dystrophy, and nutrition, among other things.
