Medicine & TechnologyTU Dresden and the Unversity of California expert Adele Doyle are going through a comprehensive research on stem cells' reaction, including mechanosignaling, towards neurological and cardiovasculat development of an organism.
German scientists used stem cells to grow a mini human brain or cerebral organoids, which developed its own eyes complete with retinas, lenses, corneas, and nerve cells that help it detect light. They believe that it could lead to lab-grown retinas for people with vision loss.
Experiments on brain organoids as well as transplanting human cells to animals have met ethical concerns for years. But a scientific panel is now reviewing how to oversee this controversial area in neuroscience.
Xenobots 2.0 is the upgraded version of the living robots from the stem cells of frogs unveiled last year. This new version brings a vast array of upgrades that makes it faster and better than the previous version.
