Biomedical engineers grow 3D brain tissue in lab | AI_interfaces_cogsci | Scoop.it

Biomedical engineers from Harvard and MIT have managed to grow three-dimensional brain tissue in a lab using a simple and inexpensive technique. The research team borrowed processes from the semiconductor industry to create layered stacks of the tissue. The development will allow fellow scientists to study things like neuron development, as well as model the effects of drug treatments on individual patients.
