    With brain transplants.

    No, really.  Erich Jarvis’ team has removed a quail forebrain and replaced it with a finch forebrain, which creates a bird that grows until just before hatching, when it dies.  The brain transplant is done at 2 days old, when the embryos are about the size of a tip of a pen.
