Potential Parkinson's breakthrough? Parkinson's reversed in mice

A potentially exciting breakthrough for generating new neurons and completely reversing Parkinsonís...at least in mice. I know that just because something works well in mice doesnít mean it will act the same in humans, but hopefully this discovery will lead to a cure...one way or another.

9. Sure, isn't that the theme of the book "Of Mice and Men?"

Actually, it kinda was. At least, it showed the similarity of mice and Curley's wife. (Bonus points if you can remember the name of Curley's wife.)

10. Something like that.

Mice are not people. This OP isn't as wonderful as it might be.
