Abstract

"A mouse is miracle enough to stagger sextillions of infidels" Leaves of Grass, Walt Whitman The mouse has become our experimental surrogate. It is the creature we turn to to do the experiments, so important in reaching an understanding of ourselves, that are either technically impossible or morally inconceivable in human subjects.
