animal research

There is a posting in the Well blog published today in the Times about a study that sought to see if exercise strengthened the brain. The researchers put mice on treadmills to measure endurance and then examined their brain tissue, in which they found new and increased mitochondrial activity in the mice that exercised but no comparable activity in their lazy, lounge-y counterparts. My question is: How cute are tiny treadmills!?
