Scientists at the University of Richmond have successfully trained rats to drive tiny cars in exchange for tasty bits of cereal, and found that learning the task lowered their stress levels. The study not only advances our understanding of how sophisticated rat brains are, but could one day help in developing new non-pharmaceutical forms of treatment for mental illness.
