    Part of the treatment was to get the rats highly motivated to try to walk. I heard the researchers used chocolate for that.

    I was wondering about why the rats were paralysed. Was that just how they were found to be or did someone paralyse them on purpose?

    Rats are sensitive to Theobromine in chocolate.

    Don’t feel bad about the rats, Tog. I a few years they will be using “non-productive humans” instead.

    The hard part was in connecting the spinal cord. For the longest time it was impossible to replace nerve tissue or create an alternate.

    Someone once designed a racing wheel chair.
    Took it out for a trial run, and passed a couple joggers.
    Heard one say "Boy, are out of shape – that guy in a wheel chair just passed us!!

    I like learning about people whose disabilities don’t stop them from being cool.
