Lab-created Mini-brains Revealed How Developing Organ Maintains Neuronal Balance

Researchers discovered mini-brain to show the development of human brain by generating organoids – distinct, 3D brain regions in a laboratory. In the study available in Cell Stem Cell, Yale researchers induced early phase stem cells that generated organoids and then merged two kinds of organoids from different brain regions showed the proper balance of excitatory and inhibitory neurons maintained by developing the brain.
