This is disgusting. Animals are not ours to experiment on. Vivisection is always brutal.

How about we leave the mice alone and start screwing around with human brains to try to make them smarter? There are a lot more stupid people than there are mice.

Dr Frankenstein I presume??? Are you kidding me? my tax dollars are now going to fund this type of obscene crap! What gives them the right to take humans cell and do this >? let alone mangle the poor mouse in the doing....I am so pissed that my money goes for this. These so called scientists are nothing more than soulless sub humans looking to make a name for themselves.............they are the ones who need their brains opened up...remember a place called Atlantis where they mixed humans and animals and created soulless beings? REALLY BAD KARMA
