Research Subjects

It's a good bet that the activity documented below was not sanctioned by an Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee. By the way, these animals are clearly rats, not mice as the film implies.

In the work I do, we are always pleased to report that the rodents are active and hanging off the top of the cages after their procedures. This implies strength, curiosity and foraging behavior. If we worked in a more surf-friendly climate, perhaps this would be a better indicator of resilience.
