Human Brain ‘Organoids’ Implanted Into Rats

Tiny brain “organoids,” or clusters of neurons grown from human stem cells, have been implanted into rats.

The organoids began stretching out new cells, and even showed signs of activity when the researchers shone lights at the rat’s eyes, a sign that they were functionally connected to the rats’ own neurons.
