    Default Rat Telepathy with Mind-Reading Implants?

    Did anybody see this story? I am skeptical, but fascinated nonetheless. Apparently, rats with encoder and decoder implants on their brains were able to send signals to each other, when one of the rats was in Brazil and one was in North Carolina. One rat was taught which lever to push to release food, and that was transmitted to the other rat via the implants, even though that rat had never been taught which lever to push. The first step in setting up telepathic links? Pretty crazy stuff...
