Humans don't have hotels in space yet, but mice and rats are getting their own zero gravity apartment complex up on the International Space Station.
While we may all be made of star stuff, these little rodents definitely illustrate that point a bit better than the rest of us.
Research by Edinburgh University proves that organ regeneration in mammals is possible by rejuvenating the thymus in mice.
This, we are told, is a terribly simplistic map of a mouse brain. But hey, it sure is pretty, isn't it? And it might even teach us a thing or two.
Harvard scientists discover fountain of youth in natural chemical that makes old mice young again.
Research using lab mice suggest that brain implants could give us the ability to see our world in magnetic fields and infrared light.
This just in from Ohio State University: fat plus more fat equals thin. In other words, if you've been trying to lose weight by adding less fat to your body, you've been doing it all wrong.
I want you to stop whatever you're doing right now and check your computer for holes. Specifically, one very long, very thin hole, or a door or tray that opens up and leads to same.

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.
