We would get motors from a manufacturer that looked balanced and met a spec, but once we put the whole machine together, sometimes a machine would have a lot of vibration and we didn't know how to quantify that vibration or to know what was good or what was bad.

mp3 As reported in Science , Chen's team put a mouse in an enclosure with a computer screen. The researchers then played a video that showed another mouse scratching. Within a few seconds, the mouse in the enclosure would start scratching, too, Chen says. This was very surprising because mice are known for their poor vision. They use smell and touch to explore areas, so we didn't know whether a mouse would notice a video. Not only did it see the video, it could tell that the mouse in the video was scratching. Next, the researchers identified a structure called the suprachiasmatic nucleus (SCN), a brain region that controls when animals fall asleep or wake up. The SCN was highly active after the mouse watched the video of the scratching mouse. When the mouse saw other mice scratching—in the video and when placed near scratching littermates—the brain's SCN would release a chemical substance called GRP (gastrin-releasing peptide).
