    Genuine breakthrough. Of course for now it is confined to mice or rats but it looks very promising.

    This story was featured in the 'science or fiction' section of the SGU podcast this week.

    It's excellent news and represents a major breakthrough if it can be replicated in humans.

    Hey, thanks for the link, new one for me. It indeed will be a real breakthrough if it holds up for humans. At least we can fix broken mice now🙂

    I think at this point medical science knows how to keep a mouse alive for 200 years.

    That'd be a good trick, seeing that they haven't been seriously trying to for even a single century...

    Then you apparently have never heard of Cosmo the immortal mouse with superpowers. Not only did they fix his severed nerves back in 1812, they gave him super powers, can leap tall mailboxes with one bound, faster than a speeding puddy tat, stronger than a vicious chihuahua. You must lead a sheltered life🙂

    Cosmo? No, never heard of him. But he sounds like a slightly under-powered version of Dangermouse.
