A Model of Human Brain Development: Measuring Oscillatory Waves in Cortical Organoids
Studying the development of the human brain has been challenging due to the limitations of animal models. In this webinar, Prof. Alysson Muotri (UC San Diego) demonstrates that the spontaneous development of neural networks in neural organoids resembles those found during early human brain formation.
