It is too good not to share this message from the BHIC Web Log, from the National Network, Libraries of Medicine.

“The holidays are upon is, and we thought we would add a bit of humor to today’s posts!

Hmm — turns out rats aren’t naughty, but nice! A recent study in Science shows they eagerly freed trapped cage mates. After that, they went even further, opening another restraint so that the two could share chocolate. Interesting! Look for this one soon on NLM PubMed (www.pubmed.gov/ ) the world’s largest Web site of biomedical info.
