Stem cells helped to understand the genetic cause of psychopathy

An international team of researchers has found that the expression of many genes that were previously associated with autism is also observed in violent psychopathy. Scientists used stem cells to analyze the expression of genes and proteins in the brain cells of psychopathic criminals.

First time recorded brain activity in a mini-brain grown from stem cells

Scientists have grown from stem cells a miniature brain, capable of creating functioning neural networks. Despite the fact that the organoid, obtained in the laboratory, is a million times smaller than the human brain, brain waves are first recorded in it, that resemble those in premature infants.
