Brain teaser: 3-D printed 'tissue' to help combat disease

A bench-top brain that accurately reflects actual brain tissue would be significant for researching not only the effect of drugs, but brain disorders like schizophrenia, and degenerative brain disease. Researchers have made progress in this area, 3-D printing a six-layered structure like brain tissue, in which cells are accurately placed and remain in their designated layer.
