A Biological Experiment, Mice With Human Brain

A major scientific event took place in the biological field recently. The animal species were being mixed together in exotic combinations. The main objective of this biological experiment was to study the brain maladies and other major brain disorders.

Scientists created mice with small amounts of human brain cells. It would help to make realistic models of neurological disorders such as Parkinson’s disease. The researchers created these mice by injecting about 100,000 human embryonic stem cells per mouse into the brains of 14-day-old rodent embryos.

The mice were born with about 0.1 percent of human cells in each of their heads. The trace amount doesn’t refer to “humanizing” the rodents.” It also mentions that injecting human stem cells into mouse brains doesn’t mean that it restructures the brain. This experiment was just to check brain maladies.

This experiment succeeded to find brain maladies. It also justified that experimental drugs and new tissue replacement therapies are safer for people.
