Scientists implanted human brain tissue in mice, according to a report published on April 23, 2018.
Human brain can be studied from brain ‘organoids’ that are made from stem cells. However, these tissues stay in a petri dish for just five days and not more than that. This study was conducted by researchers at the Salk Institute. The bean-sized brain organoid was implanted into a mouse and it was covered using a transparent window. By receiving blood supply from the mouse, the material survived for 233 days. All these days, it exhibited similar properties and growth, as if it were in a newborn.
