Modeling the Evolution of Human Brain Development Using Organoids

Sydney Keaton MuchnikNenad Sestan


In a recent issue of Nature, Kanton et al. explore human brain evolution and development by profiling the single-cell transcriptomes and epigenomes of cerebral organoids derived from human, chimpanzee, and macaque stem cells. Their results reveal key molecular characteristics that differentiate humans and non-human primates at the earliest stages of brain development.

Brain Organoids in Disease Modeling

Brain organoids are used to represent an in vitro model of the human brain. These brain organoids are derived from three-dimensional human pluripotent stem cells and can be used to help study brain biology, early brain development and different brain diseases.
