3D Brain Organoids Useful as Rett Syndrome Model, Study Shows 

Brain organoids grown from stem cells derived from people with Rett syndrome reproduced patterns of electrical brain activity that resembled seizures, a hallmark of the condition, a study demonstrated. Use of anti-seizure medications restored electrical activity to normal levels, supporting the use of brain organoid models to investigate underlying disease processes and to develop new therapies. “This work demonstrates that we can make organoids that resemble real human brain tissue and can be used to…
