Abstract

Our ability to study the developing human brain has recently been dramatically advanced by the development of human 'brain organoids', three-dimensional culture systems that recapitulate selected aspects of human brain development in reductionist, yet complex, tissues in vitro. Here I discuss the promises and challenges this new model system presents.
