Researchers use cells from ‘donated human fetuses’ to create smarter mice

The research, which is now raising ethical questions, involves injecting cells from unborn babies into the brain tissue of baby mice.

“Researchers took the immature glial cells from donated human fetuses and injected them into mouse pups,” the New Scientist reports.

It is not known whether the “donated human fetuses” had been aborted or miscarried.

The injection resulted in the creation of smarter mice as compared to ordinary lab mice as the cells assist with memory retention. Scientists compared the outcome to “ramping up” the memory of one’s computer.
