Doogie Mouse / Water Maze
Doogie Mouse / Dr. Joe Tsien / Princeton University. Tsien, a molecular biologist, genetically altered these "doogie" mice and the result is a smarter animal. Here, a mouse swims in a water maze in Professor Joseph Tsien's lab at Princeton University. The mouse must navigate the invisible underwater platforms in the water tank using only the single red dot on the surrounding wall as reference. The doogie mice perform this and other tests about twice as fast as normal mice.
