01/02/2013 17:00Conversations with RatsDr. Paul Clarke Laboratory rats appear largely silent to us, but they are in fact surprisingly vocal - in a high frequency range which we cannot hear. Rats make many different kinds of ultrasonic calls, and although we are far from "cracking the code", we think that eavesdropping on rat conversations will provide insights into the emotional life of these creatures. Dr. Paul Clarke is Professor of Pharmacology and Therapeutics at McGill University.
