University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine researchers have engineered living human nerve cells into three-dimensional neural networks with the potential to survive transplantation.

Whilst simple in lattice structure, the networks demonstrate the feasibility of growing brain circuitry artificially, then implanting it into a live brain, for the ultimate neuroprosthetic.
