Society (which includes scientists) is increasingly critical of drug testing on animals. In searching for new, animal-free methods, we have managed to keep a piece of a human brain alive in the laboratory for epilepsy research. Want to know how? And whether this reduces the number of laboratory animals in medical research? During this lecture you will hear all about it.
