There have been a number of blindness cures over the years, and the newest is particularly exciting. Researchers at UC Berkley have discovered they could restore the eyesight of blind mice by injecting a specific chemical directly in their eyes.
Neuroscientists at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory have just publicly released the first batch of gigapixel images showing how the neuronal pathways in mice are all connected to each other. It's the first step towards the first ever wiring diagram of an entire vertebrate brain.
A study from the Harvard School of Public Health suggested that yogurt is the food that does the best job at preventing age-related weight gain. To figure out what the deal was, researchers at MIT fed a bunch of yogurt to mice to see what would happen, and when the scientists say that their results were "entertaining," you know they've come up with something good.
Microsoft has had its Touch Mouse out for a little while now, and I guess it's feeling like people aren't taking enough advantage of its gestureliciousness. The big M donated an entire colony of touch mice and a handy development API to a student contest and told them to get creative, and here are the results.
Thanks to a new drug, you may soon be able to be morbidly obese without it having any sort of detrimental impact on your lifespan. At least, if you're a mouse.
So you need to be able to control the cursor on your computer and also weigh small items at the same time? Life must have been frustrating for you for a long time! But no longer, friend: the Brando scale mouse is here.
Looking for a way to keep your pants up while also projecting to the world that you're a little bit awkward? This mouse belt should do the trick.
