San Diego, California, USA. 9th Oct, 2018. -Dr. Muotri holds a tray of Neanderthal "minibrains" in his lab. DR. ALYSSON MUOTRI, Director of the University of California San Diego (UCSD) Stem Cell Program, is using pluripotent stem cells to grow Neanderthal "minibrains" in the lab. Made with Neanderthal genes, these organoids mimic the cortex, or outer brain, of Neanderthals. He hopes his research leads to insights into the minds of our genetic relative, and modern brains as well. Credit: David Poller/ZUMA Wire/ZUMAPRESS.com/Alamy Live News
