Brain models with blood vessels may accelerate research

Creating models of the intricate human brain is a daunting task, but tiny round structures assembled from brain cells demonstrate many qualities of the tissue within our skulls. Models developed in the Hoffman-Kim Lab even contain networks of miniscule vessels that resemble capillaries like those that carry blood through our brains. By constructing models that mimic the brain, scientists can better understand neurological problems and develop treatments for them more effectively.
