Training Mice To Ring Bells And Open Doors Through Positive Reinforcement

This is interesting. A woman named Marina in Austria trains mice to perform tasks like putting coins in a piggy bank, decorating a Christmas tree, using the abacus, playing basketball, etc. Marina captured her mice doing the tricks on video and you can watch most of these on her YouTube channel.

Her most recent video shows a mouse asking someone to open a door by ringing a couple of bells attached near the base of the door. According to Marina, she only uses positive reinforcement in training her rodents.
