Scientists managed to grow a "mini-brain" capable of processing signals and making decisions. Scientists have been conducting similar experiments since 2013, when a mini-brain was first produced for the study of microcephaly. But this time the organoid was connected to the external environment, it interacted with it.
Scientists have grown human brain cells from mouse stem cells, using electrodes to connect a mini-brain to a video game. In response, the cells produced their own electrical activity. Mini brain learned to play in a few minutes.
Scientists hope to use this technology to treat neuro-degenerative diseases
When people look at the tissue in the dish, they see at the moment whether there is activity or not. But the purpose of brain cells is to process information in real time. Investigating their true function opens up so many new research areas that can be explored comprehensively
The researcher plans to check how alcohol affects the brain.
In fact, Dr. Kagan's description of his invention as an intelligent system differs from many dictionary definitions that require feelings and sensations. Scientists work with bioethicists to ensure they don't accidentally create a conscious brain with all the ethical questions that might arise
We have to think of this new technology very much like the computer industry, which was born when the first transistors were failed prototypes, not very reliable, but after years of focused research, they led to huge technological wonders around the world
