As part of our Spotlight on organoids, we carried out a survey to gain an insight into how organoids are being used as a research tool in the lab, the challenges involved in organoid research and what researchers thought about the terms ‘mini-brains’ and ‘brains in a dish’. Find out the results in this informative infographic.
A ‘mini-brain’ model for studying Creutzfeldt–Jakob disease has been developed, which should allow researchers to study the disease in greater detail than in rodent and nonhuman primate models.
A recent study has opened up a method to reliably study neurological diseases utilizing human brain organoid models.
The BioTechniques editorial team talk to Jenny Straiton about her recent Tech News piece on cerebral organoids and the history of neuroscience.
Human cerebral organoids and neural 3D tissues in basic research, and their application to study neurological diseases
In this commentary from Future Neurology, the authors overview and compare cerebral organoids and other 3D aggregated cell cultures.
Whilst at FENS 2018, we spoke with Arnold Kriegstein on his work with cerebral organoids in brain development, and how we might define a cell’s maturity.
Researchers have developed a method for creating brain organoids with oligodendrocytes included, allowing them to study diseases related to myelination in a more accurate cellular environment than ever before.
Stem cells and brain organoids were the focus of a symposium during the FENS Forum…
This month we’re focusing on techniques and emerging approaches – take a look at our infographic below to learn more about the use of cerebral organoids in research.
