Human Cell Model Captures Brain and Muscle Interaction for 1st Time

A system using human cells to model how the brain controls muscle movement has been developed for the first time, and scientists expect it to aid in understanding neurological disorders that affect movement, including amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). The study describing their model system, “Generation of Functional Human 3D Cortico-Motor Assembloids,” was published in Cell. From a neurological perspective, voluntary movement can be broken down into three general steps:  an electrical signal originates in the brain,…
