科學圖說 Introduction
執行血管相關研究計畫時,解剖模式動物「大鼠」以取得血管,作為研究材料。漫長實驗過程中,空想性錯視增添了幾分趣味。為了充足實驗材料,解剖數隻大鼠以取得血管是必經的漫長過程,需要歷經繁瑣和血腥的操作。除了細心、耐心和不斷重複工作而熟能生巧,灰心、傷心的經歷也少不了。漫長的操作過程中若是倦了,只能退至一旁稍作休息再繼續。休息的片刻,退而遠望壯烈犧牲的大鼠大體,彷彿是一張貓的臉譜,為之瘋狂。
Rats, which serve as animal models, are dissected to obtain blood vessels for research. Pareidolia can make these lengthy experiments more interesting. The dissection of rats to obtain blood vessels is tedious, complicated, and bloody. Although careful, patient and well-practiced, discouragement and disappointment are inevitable. Short breaks can be taken during the procedure to reduce fatigue. During one such break, it was discovered that from a distance this sacrificed rat looks like a crazed cat.
