Scientists put human gene into monkeys to make them smarter, human-like

Making monkeys more smart and human-like, scientists have used gene-editing to insert human brain gene in a monkey.

For the first time, a team of Chinese scientists made use of gene-editing techniques to make monkey brains more human-like. By the end, the monkeys, rhesus macaques, got smarter and had superior memories as compared to the unaltered monkeys.

Researchers edited the human version of a gene known as 'MCPH1' into the macaques. The gene made the monkeys' brain develop along a more human-like timeline. The gene-hacked monkeys showed better reaction times and improved short-term memories in comparison to their unaltered peers, as per China Daily.

The team successfully created 11 transgenic rhesus monkeys carrying human copies of MCPH1. They said that a transgenic monkey model is practical and to a large extent can imitate the human-specific status.

Here's a thought, how 'bout a little gene editing in Leftists' brains?! I wonder if common sense would be too much to ask. What a wonderful world that would be, eh? Lol :eyebrows:

One or two more IQ points and they could be leftists. Or is it the other way around?

I'm curious what's the point of making monkeys smarter. So they can improve their poop-throwing skills? So they can remember where they put those bananas?
