Submission + - Scientists Selectively Shut Off Mice's Ability to Sense Cold->

Zothecula writes: How many times have you been shivering on a winter day, and wished that you were capable of simply not feeling the cold?

It is hoped that the research could lead to more effective pain medications for humans.
