They are called brain organelles and are miniature versions of our brain. There are complex health problems such as cancer, neuro-cardiovascular diseases, neurological and psychiatric diseases of which medical knowledge is still limited. “We don’t yet have exact answers about what causes specific diseases to appear and thus how to treat them – explain from Human Technopole – To fill this void, we need to understand how cells within our organs develop and change before symptoms appear. During illness and during treatment.”
However, studying organs such as the heart or brain is particularly difficult and risky as they cannot be removed from the body as the disease progresses. “But there is a valid alternative,” he emphasized from the research center where the medicine of the future is born, built where the Expo was. The answer is in these pictures, it looks like science fiction but it isn’t. It involves making small copies of those organs in the lab, starting with stem cells. “Complex structures growing in three dimensions reproduce essential aspects of the cellular organization of the real organ”. Brain organelles are used to understand the cellular mechanisms underlying neurodevelopmental disorders, “They have proven key to understanding the effect of mutations in the genes that cause autism or epilepsy or how toxins and viruses affect brain maturation.
There are many efforts to make it useful in the study and treatment of neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease. “In Brian Awareness Week, this footage comes from the laboratories of the Center for Neuroscience in Technopol, under the direction of Professor Giuseppe Testa. In this case, the organelles of the cerebellum are visible: a small cerebellum created here by scientists and in different states of different developments.
