That Ecstasy Made Me Move
While I was working on inventing vibrating-imaging wand cozies for Psycho Kitty, I noticed a recent study claiming that ecstacy relieved some of the motor abnormalities occurring in a mouse model of Parkinson's disease. Some of you may be thinking "Hmmm, but I thought ecstasy causes Parkinson's symptoms in non-human primates?"--what's the deal? You are semi-correct, little grasshoppers. A group did make that claim, but they ended up retracting their paper when they discovered that their drug had been mislabled-- they had really been giving the monkeys speed instead of ecstasy. Retraction...ouch.
