Nearly four years ago, scientists in Vienna discovered that they could create organoids – lentil-sized blobs of human brain tissue – from stem cells. The revolutionary discovery has helped advance research on human brain development, Alzheimer’s, and Zika virus.

These human brain organoids existed solely in test tubes, until this past weekend, when two teams of neuroscientists reported successfully implanting these cells into the brains of rats and mice.

Great, now we have mutant killer mice world domination threats to worry about.

Though tbh, a mouse with a lentil size blob of human brain would probably be a better choice for President than the current encumbent.

That's undoubtedly because of the larger brain size. Or maybe the human origin, or both...

My country is already run by a rat bastard. I don't think you people know what you're getting into
