Interesting. I don't know why, but when I read your title I pictured a group of rats shooting dice in some back alleyway, lol. Some of the behavioral experiments that have been done on animals is quite intriguing to me, although I feel bad for many of the animals. I suppose behavioral experiments are nothing compared with medical experiments though. Tragic.
