The human mind is somewhat of a mystery
Contd from last Saturday
The Stanford team is said to have transplanted clusters of human cells into the somatosensory cortices of newborn mice, the part of the brain that processes or 'processes' sensory information, such as touch, from throughout the body. The human brain occupies a third of the brain of rats. According to a detailed report published in the journal Nature, scientists studying those mice in depth this is going to give a lot of strength to the experiments being done on the brain. This team of scientists had observed in their earlier experiment that the human part did not mature successfully in mice. Therefore, this time the part of the human brain was prepared according to the structure of the rats.
This experiment has been done on newborn mice and the success achieved clearly shows that such an experiment will not be successful on the adult brain yet. To make such an experiment successful in an adult brain scientists will need to work harder. Researchers at Stanford have grown some of their organoids from cells taken from patients with Timothy syndrome, a serious genetic disease. If the effect of this disease is being studied in laboratory-reared mice, then it is sure to be beneficial in the study of other brain diseases as well.
Right now working or experimenting directly on the human brain is not free from danger, so scientists have decided to take cooperation from rats in the study of mental diseases. of rats Those parts of the brain that seek reward are activated. Well, parts smaller than a pea-sized portion of the human brain are being used. There is also a apprehension that the experiment is not in the interest of the rats and that the rats may have unwanted effects. However, scientific evidence is being searched, there will be controversy if rats have a bad effect, but if there is a general effect on rats and medical science prospered, then the whole world will welcome.
