A groundbreaking discovery by scientists at the University of Wisconsin-Madison has led to the successful 3D printing of functional human brain tissue. This breakthrough, published in the journal Cell Stem Cell, could improve treatments for neurological disorders like Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease. The researchers created horizontal layers of brain cells, that were encased in a soft "bio-ink" gel, allowing neurons to grow and communicate with each other.
