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.


Scientists believe the little brains could help treat neurological and mental diseases:
