So scientists discover that mice can sing.  Old hat.  We’ve known about this capacity for a long time:


I immediately thought of the ol’ mouse organ when I read this bit from the article:

When the scientists damaged brain cells in the motor cortex which appeared to be controlling the mice’s singing they lost their ability to sustain the same pitch and to consistently make the same noise. The same effect was noticed when the mice were made deaf.

Heh.  We knew that, too.   How does one say, “My braaaaaain hurts!” in Mouse Language?
