It is managed researchers to grow a miniaturehjerne in a petri dish.
The small blob, " peg " sent small threads, which is reminiscent of the creepers, and thereby created a connection to a affixed to the spine and muscles from a mouse.
It writes The Guardian according to the Science.dk
We have so far not been able to get the mini-brain to 'reach out' after a affixed to the spine or muscles. That it is now feasible means, according to the researchers behind the study, to have taken a huge leap in trying to understand, for example, nervesygdommen ALS.
The new effort comes in the wake of many researchers the world over have been better to research in the human brain.
the Reason is that this study separates itself from the crowd, is that the researchers cut the mini-brain out in slices on a half millimeter thickness.
Then made sure to give each slice plenty of energy and oxygen, and it did so, each slice of the brain was to develop, instead of merely die, which you have witnessed so far.
Ph. d. Madeline Lancaster, who is the leader of the research at the Medical Research Councils Laboratory of Molecular Biology in Cambridge, England, told The Guardian:
- We are trying of course not to create something just for fun. We will use this knowledge to identify diseases and understand how these connections work.
the Ambition is to use methods like this to study how the human brain and the nervous system develops, and what happens when things go wrong in connection with diseases such as ALS, epilepsy, and schizophrenia.
the Study is published in the scientific journal Nature Neuroscience.
