Researchers Create Functional Brain Tissue




For the first time, researchers have created biological tissue that functions like brain tissue.



The human brain remains one of the least understood organs in the human body, because of its complexity and the difficulty of studying its physiology in a living person. Tufts University researchers today announced development of the first reported complex three-dimensional model made of brain-like cortical tissue that exhibits biochemical and electrophysiological responses and can function in the laboratory for months. On injury, the model (pictured here) mimics the reaction of living brain tissue.
