Researchers develop in vitro model of brain for research

Harvard University researchers have developed a multiregional brain-on-a-chip that models the connectivity between three distinct regions of the brain. The in vitro model was used to extensively characterize the differences between neurons from different regions of the brain and to mimic the system’s connectivity. ┬áThe research was published in the Journal of Neurophysiology.
