"Rats" in the News [Jun. 18th, 2004|10:01 am]
[Current Mood |seratoniny]

Researchers have made an interesting discovery in the area of neurotransmitter chemical receptors and marital fidelity, turning randy "rats" into faithful partners. It's all about the brain chemistry!

Technically (and much to my disappointment), the study actually used voles. Though they are in the same family (muridae), voles (microtus) aren't in the same genus as true rats (rattus).

You see, the problem was that they couldn't get any rats to vole-unteer.
