Slide – 8 The scientists put pieces of chocolate in different places and the mice had to remember where they found them. They used different mazes to rule out learned pattern. Study was published in June 2013 issue of Current Biology.

Irene Pepperberg Was his scientist.
In early September 2007, Alex said to Pepperberg: “You be good. I love you. See you tomorrow.” The next day, the 31-year-old parrot was found dead of what was determined to be a heart event probably related to hardened arteries
