From disturbing animal lab tests to hair-raising studies on humans, we'll show you things that'll absolutely horrify you! 11. Researchers from the University of Pittsburgh were able create a regenerative powder made from pigs! They scraped cells from the lining of a pig's bladder, decellulised them, then let it dry. From this were able to regrow an entire finger. finger made from 100% USDA Grade A pork! 10. In 2000, regenerative biologist Amy Wager of Harvard sewed together two mice and joined them at their circulatory systems. Once they were connected, the blood from the younger mouse helped reverse the effects of aging in multiple areas of the older mouse's body. Not only did its liver improve, but it also enhanced its spinal cord and brain! This approach can be transferred over to humans in the manner of plasma transferal from young donors to elderly people experiencing Alzheimer's. 9. MK-ULTRA was the codename for a secret CIA program in the 1950s where chemicals and interrogation tools were used via substances & chemicals in an effort to research potential mind control weapons. They secretly dosed thousands of suspecting and unsuspecting people, which included the involvement of 86 different universities or institutions and some foreign nationals! One part of MK-ULTRA was called Operation Midnight Climax, where they worked with a bunch of ladies of the night to lure in and seduce men then dose 'em with substances. The MK-ULTRA program was ultimately terminated when CIA agent Frank Olsen jumped to his death from his hotel room's 13th floor window, 8. In 2011 a bunch of researchers did some studies on a patient known anonymously as "SM," who claimed to not experience fear. This was because she had severe damage on her amygdala--or the part of your brain that experiences fear. They put her through a bunch of scary stuff! And as it turns out, she still felt no fear! But in 2013, they brought her back in for more testing. This time, having her inhale carbon dioxide to recreate the experience of asphyxiation. She had a panic attack just like everyone else! Researchers therefore concluded that the amygdala isn't the only thing that processes fear, but that it's a universal emotion too. 7. John Marzluff of the University of Washington ran a super interesting experiment on them in Seattle. Ok, so they took two masks: one of a caveman that they designated as "dangerous" and the other of Dick Cheney that they designated as "neutral". Anyways, they had several people walk by these crows wearing both masks over the course of a few weeks until one day, they had a trapper--who was wearing the "dangerous" caveman mask--move in with a net launcher to capture and mark their asses before they were released back to freedom. They then had people periodically walk by the marked crows while wearing both masks, and you'll never guess what happened: the crows started scolding and dive-bombing whoever was wearing the caveman mask while Dick Cheney was peacefully left alone…and this happened not only once, but every single time over the course of the next three years! This experiment demonstrates a crow's uncanny ability to remember people and really pick out individual faces from a crowd. 6. PhD student Marlene Thielecke allowed a parasite known as the sand flea to live in her foot while she was studying them in Madagascar to observe its mating behaviors. 5. Henry Cotton implemented a procedure known as surgical bacteriology at the insane asylum in Trenton, New Jersey where he performed surgical operations to remove teeth and organs in order to treat infe...
