Making brain tissue with a 3-D printer.

In Brain Technology, Materials Science by Brainy Days Ahead

Researchers need brain tissue to learn about brain functions. This article describes the innovative efforts of researchers at the ARC Centre of Excellence for Electromaterials Science (ACES) to meet this challenge, by developing a 3-D printed layered structure incorporating neural cells that mimics the structure of brain tissue. What will they think of next?
