Chinese Robot Mice Potential Mini-spies
« on: July 30, 2005, 12:56:08 PM »

Robotic scientists in China have succeeded in 'controlling' live mice.

Experts at the robot research centre in Shandong Technology University controlled white mice by stimulating micro-electrodes on their heads.

The mice obeyed computer-generated commands to, in succession, "turn left", "turn right" and "move forward".

Project manager Su Xuecheng said animal robot research is the merger of electronic communication and biology, creating a new scientific discipline.

Scientists believe it will eventually lead to new ways of curing disabilities as electronic signals are used to replace damaged nerves.
