Neuroscientists have designed brain organoids to contain both mature neurons and astrocytic glial cells in relative proportions like the human brain.
Researchers have innovated the petri dish to be able to grow and age live brain cells from patients with neurological disorders.
International researchers have analysed nearly 1,900 brain samples to create the Brain Atlas, the latest database released by the Human Protein Atlas (HPA) project.
Scientists identify 'wake-up' signal for deep-sleeping neural stem cells to potentially aid in the treatment for neurological disorders.
