Yes, human brains can be grown in a DISH; Thanks to the science of ‘Brain Organoids.’
Dealing with the complexities of nature as it is being tedious, is also mysterious in its own versatile ways. It becomes even more suspicious when it comes in analyzing human body at an integral level, since it may cost a higher penalty than expected. Since ages, nature has this amazing miracle of evolution that has helped us not only advance from the basics to the most unimaginable and unpredictable progression towards life but also has helped us unfold the most incredible wonders. This was impeccably demonstrated with recent studies, under MIT, that were able to cultivate BRAIN ORGANOIDS in a Lancaster’s dish.
The question next arises is, what are these Brain Organoids?
Brain Organoids also called as the cerebral Organoids are the human pluripotent stem cell derived three dimensional culture systems that depict the human brain replica in ways that are analogous to the development of the brain cortex or brain areas precinct in an actual human brain. Well, in simpler words these culture systems that were developed consist of the same discrete regions of the human brain postulating the human brain development just in dishes in a lab. Well, how astonishing is that, ‘Brains growing in a dish’, as they are sometimes termed by the scientists.
This tissue is developed from a single cell taken from the individual in Lancaster’s dish along with proper biochemical prodding it to develop into a pluripotent cluster of tissue and then soon into a neuron. Well, isn’t that easy at it sounds to be.
Can you imagine the gates that have been opened to the modern medicine due to this?
We are aware about the various perilous consequences of the neurosurgery for years. This life threatening and risky surgery, even with prolonged considerations still are under the dilemma of the unforeseen effects that may be the consequent result of the same. Because of the development of brain Organoids, it is now possible to test for the possible scourge that may be an outcome of the medication. Now, scientist can effectively study the patient status because of this mini brain cultivation to source the proper medical condition inhibiting the individual’s health. This may also be the great way of dealing with Alzheimer’s disease which has been under questions for so many years.
With this molecular advancement, literally on a cellular level, imagine its prospects on a bigger pier!
