That's easy. Measure reactions to a certain factor - water, a ball, a pair of die, socks, etc - and then induce fear by associating pain and stress
with that factor. Measure reactions after administering the treatment, and if the reactions associated with fear and distress are significantly
reduced beyond what would normally be expected of a rodent's nature, then you have conclusive results.
Honestly, use your imagination!
You assume that just because a mouse is assumed to be inferior to human beings, its emotional responses cannot
be determined? It's Standford, these guys are paid to be right!
