Special Rat Is First Animal With A Sixth Sense!

| Filed under: Science!AmazingRat

A rat sees dead people!

HA!

Not really, but a rat was given a sixth sense by scientists who developed a system that connects a head-mounted sensor to a brain region that normally processes touch sensations from whiskers.

A scientist said:

"Instead of seeing, the rats learned how to touch the light."

This breakthrough could allow scientists to develop a new brain prostheses for humans that restores sight for people with a damaged visual cortex. Hypothetically they would install a video camera in the part of the brain that processes touch.

And THIS could lead to developments where humans have crazy powers!!!

One scientist said:

"It could be X-rays, radio waves, anything. Superman probably had a prosthetic device that nobody knew of."

Wait?!?!

Superman was REAL?!?!

We thought he was just a fictional character, LOLZ!
