Scientists in the USA have devised a gene therapy that turn ordinary monkeys into workaholics, according to the BBC.
How long until this one hits the ‘high performance workplace’ . . . ?
Usually monkeys work hard only when they know a reward is coming, but the animals given this treatment did their best all the time.
Monkeys are rather like people in their approach to work - at least, those who live in a laboratory and learn to press levers for rewards of food and water. They concentrate on their task only when the moment of delivery approaches.
