Do They Hear Voices? Or Squeaks?

Scientists breed world’s first mentally ill mouse

SCIENTISTS have created the world’s first schizophrenic mice in an attempt to gain a better understanding of the illness.

How can you tell if a mouse is schizophrenic? Do they wear little tin-foil hats to keep the mind-control beams away? Even if you can tell I don't think you could get a clear picture of what's going on in the mind of a mouse to study treatments. They don't even fully understand schizophrenia in humans.
