Fearless Mice, Scardy Cat

Following some recent development in genetics, another experiment in Tokyo University was done to prove that fears are not learned through experience but genetically embedded on us.

On this experiments, the genetic engineers switched off the instinct of the mouse from fearing the cat by removing some nasal cells.

From these, I just learned that mice fear the cats because they can smell them.
[So, can I say a person fears other people because of their smell. What a logic? :p]

Well anyway, the study only shows that we can also control any fears -- its all with the mind.

Looking back with "Glowing in the Dark" Cat, I don't think that mouse will befriend with the glowing cat.
