It's been ten wonderful years of blogging and we can't get enough of it!
So much has changed, and looking back the one big thing in our life, the one major constant, has been our faithful companion:
We love you, Teddy!!
A neuroscientist has linked the brains of two rats together, so when one of them pushes a lever - the other one does, too!
The rats were trained to push a lever when a light went on, but after a while, electrodes were placed in the rodent's brains.
Here's what one scientist said:
"These experiments showed that we have established a sophisticated, direct communication linkage between brains. Basically, we are creating what I call an organic computer."
For anyone worried about these experiments starting the rise of a a group of super rats invading our homes - the scientist said that nothing of the sort can arise from this research.
"I don't think there's any risk of supersmart rats from this. There's a big difference between sharing sensory information and being able to plan. I'm not worried about an imminent invasion of 'rat multiborgs'."
We were seriously worried about that, lolz!
