by Moin Uddin Ahmed Tipu

Scientists have made another huge stem cell breakthrough. This time growing a human brain tissue in a lab! Laci explains how this work might revolutionize treatment for currently untreatable conditions.

Human ‘Mini Brains’ Grown From Stem Cells In Lab Dish

“The first complete living model of the developing human brain has been created in a lab dish. Researchers grew human stem cells in an environment that encouraged them to form pea-size gobs of brain tissue, which developed into distinct brain tissues, including a cerebral cortex and retina.”
Tiny Brain Parts Teased from Stem Cells

“Ear, eye, liver, windpipe, bladder, and even a heart. The list of body parts grown from stem cells is getting longer and longer. Now add to it one of the most complex organs: the brain.”

Cerebral organoids model human brain development and microcephaly

“The complexity of the human brain has made it difficult to study many brain disorders in model organisms, highlighting the need for an in vitro model of human brain development.”

Wake Forest Physician Reports First Human Recipients of Laboratory-Grown Organs

“The first human recipients of laboratory-grown organs were reported today by Anthony Atala, M.D., director of the Institute for Regenerative Medicine at Wake Forest University School of Medicine. In The Lancet, Atala describes long-term success in children and teenagers who received bladders grown from their own cells.”

Young Girl Receives Lifesaving Windpipe Transplant Made From Her Stem Cells

“Hannah Warren was born without a trachea but now has one made from plastic fibers and a stew of her own stem cells.”

Lab-Grown ‘Custom’ Organs May Be Future of Medicine

“Custom-made organs from a patient’s own tissues would solve this problem, obviating the need for strong immune-suppressing medications that come with significant side effects.”

Scientists grow human heart tissue using stem cells

“Scientists from the University of Pittsburgh turned human pluripotent stem cells into precursor heart cells, then used a mouse heart ‘scaffold’ to grow them into heart muscle. Researchers say the findings are a small step towards being able to manufacture transplant organs.”

Some countries like France and China consume animal brains . Imagine we want to that cruelty free in a lab.

(Oh yeah for those " anti racists" I forget to mention mexicans and cubans they too).

GIVE IT A SENTIENCE. I wanna see what it’s thoughts are and stuff

I find growing human or even other animal brains like this highly unethical, especially for the reason that we do not know if they have any possible awareness. If they do its all the more unethical and I see it as no different than intentionally taking someone and intentionally disabling all their senses and keep them tapped in a body they cannot function in and the insanity that can cause.

would love to have them be able to grow whole new eyes and be able to attach them to the brain, I had congenital cataracts, secondary cataracts, then an injury to one eye. I have floaters galore and they seem to be multiplying each day. Would love some new eyes. Hopefully there is new news on this.

So this is not new at all
