Behaviorial pharmacology, behind the scenes

I was unaware the DrugMonkey and PhysioProf were on the payroll of The Onion.
I’m not a behaviorial pharmacologist but I know quite a few and it didn’t keep me from howling out loud at yet another gem from one of my favorite satirical pubs.

  1. Thanks for the chortles.
    That brought to mind one of the first pieces of pharmacology humor I ever saw — I think it was in 1962 at the FASEB meetings in Atlantic City. A group of grad students and post-docs from the pharmacology department of one of the London medical schools showed a movie they’d put together, ostensibly for recruiting new grad students in pharmacology — done in the style of the “Carry On…” movies which were very popular at that time. It was hilarious. I wonder if any copies still exist.

  2. The test subject, a common house mouse, briskly traversed the complicated wooden maze in under 30 seconds or, according to the study’s final report, roughly 1/8,789,258 as long as it took the lab to secure funding for the experiment.
    this was a serious screen cleaning moment.
