Lab created Brain will explain Eye-to-brain coordination

Lab created Brain will explain Eye-to-brain coordination


German scientists have created an artificial human brain in the laboratory. This mini brain also has eyes. Although the eyes are not yet fully developed. This mini brain was developed from human stem cells. It was prepared by researchers from the Institute of Human Genetics, Germany. Scientists say the eyes in the mini brain developed like those of a 5-week-old fetus. In the future, many new things will come out of it, which will help in the treatment of many diseases. Why this mini brain is special, know its 3 big things

Mini brain is 3mm wide. The eyes present in it have cornea, lens and retina, which help it to see light. These eyes can also communicate with the brain with the help of neurons and nerve cells.


Scientists say this lab-made retina will be useful in the future for people who can’t see. 


According to a study published in the journal Cell Stem, when rays of light were shined on these eyes, the signals reached the brain. This proves that what the eyes see reaches the brain. For the first time this has been observed in a brain developed in a laboratory. Researcher Gopalakrishnan says that with the help of the mini-brain, it will be possible to understand how the eye and brain interact during fetal development, in congenital retinal diseases, and after testing certain drugs on the retina.


Not durable due to lack of blood supply. Scientists say that about 314 such mini-brains were made in 60 days. Three quarters of them were fully developed. They looked like human embryos. They could not survive long without a blood supply. Due to lack of blood supply, it gradually ended in two and a half months.
