Society (which also includes scientists) is becoming increasingly critical of testing medicines on animals. In the search for new, cruelty-free methods, we have succeeded in keeping a piece of a human brain alive in the laboratory for research into epilepsy. Would you like to find out how? And whether this reduces the number of laboratory animal used in medial research? You can find out in this lecture.
