Advances in science have allowed experts to connect tiny human brains with that of a rat.

To do this, they created clumps of cells that behave similarly to human brains called organoids.

Several labs have inserted those organoids into rat brains, connected them to blood vessels and successfully grown physical links.

Medical mag Stat reported that when scientists shone a light into a rat’s eye or stimulated the brain regions involved in vision, that the neurons in the implanted organoid fired up.
