Researchers took the immature glial cells from donated human fetuses and injected them into mouse pups. The cells developed into star-shaped glial cells known as astrocytes. 300,000 human cells were injected into each mouse, but 12 months later that number had increased to 12 million. The mouse’s own glial cells had been driven out by human astrocytes which are up to 20 times larger than those in mice.
Researchers have compared the project to “ramping up” the memory in your computer.
What was the outcome? Researchers have found that the supermouse is much smarter than traditional mice. The study found a fourfold improvement in memory.

I agree completely. Heck, I place myself among those fools. Civilization has always grown or improved at the hands of one or two gifted individuals. The rest of us simply reap the benefits (or consequences).
