Human disorders of cognition arise from hundreds of gene mutations and mice serve as models for developing and testing therapeutic approaches. Recent advancements using touchscreen psychological tests that measure similar components of cognition in mice and humans can be combined with genetics. These experiments formally demonstrate that different components of cognition in humans and mice are not merely analogous, but homologous, sharing common descent and genetic constitution. They also show… CONTINUE READING
