Exciting new paper uses chimpanzee organoids, grown in the lab, to gain insights into the evolution of human brain development. Emerging research tools like these can transform investigations of the origins of our species.
Comparisons of cerebral organoids between chimpanzees, macaques, and humans reveal developmental evolutionary differences that are unique to us as a species. #neuroscience #brain #neuron #evolution #scRNAseq #organoids #brainorganoids #transcriptome
