The above guy is correct, plus even if mice did have full human brains that isn't going to protect them from my boot or pellet gun should they choose
to take over the executive
Experimenting on mice is the logical first step because they are not very "advanced" (for mammals... they're
obviously extraordinarily complex compared to, uh, earthworms etc.) Plus, mice are cheap, and they'll die soon naturally anyway. Mice can also be
special "ordered" to come with a huge variety of different "desirable" traits (for the particular experiment - One company doing this is 'Charles
River Laboratories' if I recall correctly - like ordering diabetic mice or other special features) which will enable scientists to both experiment on
subjects with specific features, and on a huge range of different features.
The whole thing really reminds me of that movie "Charlie" based on the book "Flowers for Algernon".
