A new study analyzing the development of lab-grown brain organoids has found some striking similarities to the maturation of human brains in early development

Growing simplified, miniature versions of human brains in the lab can provide researchers with an invaluable model for studying cognitive disorders and how disease takes hold in this incredibly complex organ, and recently we're seeing how these organoids share some striking similarities with the real thing. Scientists have carried out a first-of-a-kind analysis of 20-month-old lab-grown brain organoids to find that they had matured much like a human brain, following an internal clock to guide their development.
