In the artificial marrow could grow blood vessels
Researchers at Brown University, located in Providence, United States, created a laboratory brain, which then were able to grow a network of blood vessels. Now they are hoping that with the help of this achievement will be better able to explore many of the processes occurring in the human body.
Experts plan to study the layout received some diseases, including stroke and brain concussion, although at the moment the artificial brain vessels have problems: vascular network of the brain is much denser and more at the laboratory within the vessels of the brain there is no blood. Nevertheless, due to the fact that he has become more realistic, many studies conducted with it will become even more effective.
"It's great that we were able to grow in our test sample, blood vessels, - says Diane Hoffman-Kim, an assistant professor of medical science and technology - because they are in this brain, so we expect to be able to better learn, thanks to our artificial sample ".
itself is a mini-brain, scientists have developed as early as 2015. Despite the fact that he was in their structure much easier to present, it is fairly easy and inexpensive to manufacture.
