Experts from the American Center for cell engineering (tufts University) reported on successful completion of the experiment on the cultivation of similarity to the brain. Scientists have managed to create a three-dimensional model of neurons divided into white and gray matter. The brain has lived in the tube for two months.
The specialists of many countries were growing nervous tissue, though it eventually turned out to be a flat cluster of neurons. Previous attempts were not allowed to divide the material and play a complex brain organization. Especially difficult are recognised scientists, was to create a three-dimensional model and to make the cells right to share in the space.

Experts do not aim was to create a "real " thinking" brain. The obtained product can study the influence of environmental factors on neurons and their division. In the future, the researchers plan to study on an artificial mini-brain, the action of drugs.
