A Clump of Neurons!

Frankenstein started with an abnormal brain and patched together a living monster. Now neurobiologists have taken nerve cells, allowed them to grow in a clump and stimulated them to connect with one another. After lots of patience in allowing these cells to connect, they began sensing signals from the clump. Actual brain waves were detected! Now the scientists are determining how to make their nerve clump get bigger and produce more complexity. Someday they might look like our picture above and declare, “It’s Alive!”
