06/07/15 A new AIDS vaccine protects Monkeys against SIV. With a 50% success rate in monkeys with SIV, the vaccine is already being trialled in humans. The researchers hope… http://www.understandinganimalresearch.org.uk/news/research-medical-benefits/this-week-in-animal-research-100715/

Broken memories

Researchers studying mice have discovered that brain cells may break their own DNA to form new memories.

Scientists 'read' mouse brains

By imaging the brains of mice whilst they navigated a virtual maze, scientists have identified unique nerve activity that allows them to predict which way the mouse will turn next.
