“Organoid” lab-grown brain models surprise scientists with unexpected longevity 

“Organoid” brain tissue models grown in a lab for two years can help scientists study a critical period of development just before and after birth. Researchers are growing little balls of human brain tissue, about four millimeters in diameter, from stem cells in the lab. They’re optimistic this tissue engineering will bring about a sea

The mystery of a meteor shower that disappeared for 60 years

Unlike some of the particularly famous annual meteor showers enjoyed by stargazers across the globe, the Phoenicids were discovered in a spectacular meteor storm that rained down just once in 1956 – and then for several decades, the fireworks virtually disappeared.

Scientists remotely hacked a brain, controlling body movements – BGR

“Imagine someone remotely controlling your brain, forcing your body’s central processing organ to send messages to your muscles that you didn’t authorize. It’s an incredibly scary thought, but scientists have managed to accomplish this science fiction nightmare for real, albeit on a much small scale, and they were even able to prompt their test subject
