Chinese scientists create monkeys with human brain genes!

Chinese scientists have implanted human brain genes into monkeys, in a study intended to provide insights into the unique evolution of human intelligence. Researchers inserted human versions of MCPH1, a gene that scientists believe plays a role in the development of the human brain, into 11 rhesus monkeys.

However, the monkeys did not grow bigger brains than the control group.

The monkeys underwent memory tests requiring them to remember colours and shapes on a screen and were subjected to MRI scans.

Only five of the monkeys survived into the testing stage.

What do you think, is this animal cruelty, are we in need of monkeys running around as humans?

this is disgusting! what we do to animals in labs is nothing short of barbaric. the holocaust has nothing on what humans do to animals. these experiments benefit no one and is useless to the betterment of humanity. we have many vile human beings stealing oxygen that should rather be subjected to this cruelty.

Sometimes when I look around, I wonder if there are not humans walking around with monkey brains. Just a pity that some scientists use their knowledge in ways that are of no use to humankind. Reply

These scientists will end up causing a lot of havoc with ghis testing of theirs. They will one day create a monster that could not be controlled. And we will be eaten up by it n its offsprings. Reply

I'm aware of these experiments, i read up about what the Chinese do every so often. It's extreme and a little unethical to me. Reply

I don't like these kind of experiments. They never produce the results that scientists believe they will and YES it is cruel! Reply
