Test Tube Brain Grown to Battle Alzheimer's

Current studies reveal that in the future, test tube brains made from human skin cells could help prevent damage caused by Alzheimer’s disease. These miniature organs are being grown in a laboratory by scientists at Aston University in Birmingham. The team at Aston University includes scientists from a wide range of institutions – physicists, stem cell biologists, photonics experts, and neuroscientists.
