Scientists have grown a brain that suddenly began to function

brain blueCalifornia scientists have grown a brain model from nerve cells, and ten months later they unexpectedly discovered that its tissue began to show activity. This was reported by Newsweek.

Biologists from the University of California at San Diego said the rate of neural activity is unprecedented.

During the study, scientists placed stem cells in a living culture that resembles the environment of the brain. As a result, they gradually turned into cells of the cerebral cortex and connected to each other in such a way as to form a structure similar to the brain.

During the experiment, hundreds of organelles, that is, brain elements, were grown.

Brain waves recorded by scientists are coordinated impulses that are transmitted by neurons at a certain frequency. These waves have impulses characteristic of thought processes, however, according to scientists, the resulting brain model is too primitive and cannot have consciousness.

Researchers believe that in the future they will receive something similar to the signals of the human brain, which affect behavior, memory and the thought process. In addition, the resulting model will help find ways to treat brain diseases such as autism, schizophrenia and epilepsy.

Scientists also do not exclude that in the future their results will be useful for creating artificial intelligence.
