Alysson Muotri: Neanderthal Brains in a Bottle

So this is not exactly a Neanderthal brain in a bottle, but it gestures in that direction. What are the genetic changes that made us human?

This was the movie Alysson mentioned. William (2019) - IMDb

The interview was much more informative than any of the articles I’ve seen online recently, and highlighted the limits of what the research actually shows. I appreciated also the questions about ethics.

I was wondering during the presentation if the organoids grow at the same rate as fetal human brains, and in the same way…and whether that would affect the result.
