Surprisingly, study co-author Arkarup Banerjee of NYU tells Boddy, the animals appeared to be more polite than most humans. Once the scientists had mapped out this communication etiquette, they moved on to identifying the exact brain region responsible for the sounds.
When the team overstimulated the OMC with electrodes, the critters grew confused and sang the wrong notes. But when the team cooled down that same region, the mice retained their musical catalogue, even adding an extra few notes to extend the song. Moving forward, Long and his colleagues plan on exploring how their rodent-focused research relates to the human brain. Subscribe or Give a Gift. Sign up.

Sing Before Breakfast: A Story of Gettysburg by George Stein
Ask Smithsonian. Sherman in North Carolina. Lincoln had prepared this speech carefully. The formerly jubilant crowd fell silent as Lincoln delivered his remarks, which were far from the celebratory address they had expected. It also empowered the state legislature to enfranchise blacks, if it chose to do so. Lincoln argued that even though Louisiana had not yet exercised its right to enfranchise blacks, it had pledged its loyalty to the Union, and would provide a crucial vote in favor of the 13th Amendment, which outlawed slavery.
For the first time he publicly expressed his support for limited black suffrage, which he had previously discussed only in private. I would myself prefer that it were now conferred on the very intelligent, and on those who serve our cause as soldiers. That is the last speech he will ever make.
