+ - Scientists Selectively Shut Off Mice's Ability to Sense Cold->

Submitted by Zothecula
Zothecula (1870348) writes "How many times have you been shivering on a winter day, and wished that you were capable of simply not feeling the cold? Well, that’s just what scientists at the University of Southern California have done to a group of lab mice – they disabled the animals’ ability to sense cold, while leaving their ability to sense heat and touch intact. It is hoped that the research could lead to more effective pain medications for humans."
