5 Of The Most Creepy Science Experiments Where Animals Were Involved

Science help people, save lives and let us live longer but to reach this level of knowledge humanity has gone through horrible experiments. Nexter.org gathered some of them where were involved. 

Two-headed dogs

 

Vladimir Demikhov, a successful surgeon, was the first person to perform a successful coronary artery bypass operation on a warm-blooded creature. But, behind his successful operations, there are few of his experiments that can make you feel uncomfortable. His famous two-headed dog experiment is one of them.

He stitched the head, shoulders and front legs of a puppy onto the neck of a German shepherd. Although the surgery was a success as both dogs could move around independent of each other, they didn’t survive very long due to tissue rejection. Demikhov created 20 such two-headed dogs, but the highest one survived only for a month.

Blood of young mice rejuvenates old mice

Scientists interested in aging joined two mice together—one young, the other old—and studied the effects. Once its circulatory system was connected to that of a younger mouse, the old mouse experienced reversed aging in muscle and in the brain. Although it’s not quite time to start asking your kids for blood transfusions, researchers are keen to start clinical trials in humans.

Zombie dogs

 

Known as Experiments in the Revival of Organisms, Russian scientists Dr. Sergei Brukhoneko and Boris Levinskovsky released a video of dog heads that were kept alive by an artificial blood circulation system.

Using a special heart-lung apparatus called the autojektor, the scientists showed dog heads responding to sound by wiggling their ears, blinking eyes and even licking their mouths.

In 2005, scientists at the Salk Institute for Biological Sciences in La Jolla, California were on a mission to prove that a fully functional human brain can be grown in the head of a different species.

In particular, they injected stem cells in fetal rodents, combining the possibility of developing mice with human brain cells that could result in either human-smart rodents or humans with mouse brains. The outrageous human-animal research experiment, according to The Washington Post, was to be used as a basis for researches to support the theory that stem cell therapies for neurodegenerative disorders could work—as proven by the stem cells adapting well to a different environment inside an animal.

Experiment for a noble cause, sure, but the entire procedure is enough to cause anyone to feel squeamish!

Extinct brought back to life

Scientists have brought the genetic material of the Tasmanian tiger, extinct since 1936, back to life by splicing it into the DNA of a lab mouse. They have yet to successfully clone an extinct animal, although they’re working hard at developing a 21st-century woolly mammoth using well-preserved 10,000-year-old blood.
