    How anger changes the BRAIN: Aggression causes new nerve cells to grow which can trigger even more rage in the future
    • Researchers studied changes in brains of mice with aggressive behaviour
    • After winning a fight, mice became angrier and new neurons appeared
    • This in turn appeared to cause them to become more aggressive
    • Study could shed light on angry behaviour and even how autism develops

    The more time that the mice preferred to spend in the dark, closed space, the more their behaviour could be described as 'avoiding risk'.

    If the mice were deprived of fighting for a period of time before the test, they became even more aggressive, with fights beginning sooner and lasting longer.
    But their anxiety levels increased too.

    For example, a male that succeeded in tearing out patches of hair from the back of a weaker mouse avoided open spaces, preferring to sit in the dark wherever possible

    I'm very very grumpy due to pain today...but why o why is the behaviour of RODENTS so often used to judge how things affect humans???
    To state the obvious- I can think of more differences we have with mice than similarities! How would you know if a mouse had ME- would it fall knackered onto the sofa after cooking dinner? Would it be too tired to finish a phone call? Would it be too tired to take a shower in the morning? I would have thought the main 'stress' in a mouse's life would be the availability of cheese and other snacks, and not getting caught by a scientist and experimented on!

    Rant over! Thank you @roller for posting, and always good to have a quote from Gandhi to lift our spirits on a gloomy Monday.:)
