ananyo (2519492) writes "With the right mix of nutrients and a little bit of coaxing, human stem cells derived from skin can assemble spontaneously into brain-like chunks of tissue, researchers report in the journal Nature. A fully formed artificial brain might still be years away, but the pea-sized neural clumps developed in this work could prove useful for researching human neurological diseases."
