Electrophysiological Analysis of Brain Organoids: Current Approaches and Advancements

Major advances in electrophysiological technologies and analytical methods are reviewed with a focus on advances with applicability for brain organoid analysis, highlighting key technologies forbrain organoid development and characterization.

Cell diversity and network dynamics in photosensitive human brain organoids

It is found that organoids can generate a broad diversity of cells, which are related to endogenous classes, including cells from the cerebral cortex and the retina, which may offer a way to probe the functionality of human neuronal circuits using physiological sensory stimuli.

The functional diversity of retinal ganglion cells in the mouse

It is shown that the mouse retina harbours substantially more than 30 functional output channels, which include all known and several new ganglion cell types, as verified by genetic and anatomical criteria.

Neuronal Migration and Lamination in the Vertebrate Retina

This work discusses neuronal migration and lamination in the vertebrate retina and summarizes the knowledge on these aspects of retinal development, as well as stating the open questions and future directions in this exciting field.

Human brain organoid networks

It is demonstrated that human brain organoids have self-organized neuronal assemblies of sufficient size, cellular orientation, and functional connectivity to co-activate and generate field potentials from their collective transmembrane currents that phase-lock to spiking activity.

Role of mechanical cues in shaping neuronal morphology and connectivity

The in vitro and more recent in vivo studies supporting the notion that mechanical signals are critical for multiple aspects of neuronal circuit assembly, from the emergence of axons to the formation of functional synapses are reviewed.

Mechanics of human brain organoids.

A mathematical model is proposed to elucidate the role played by two mechanisms which have been experimentally proven to be crucial in shaping human brain organoids: the contraction of the inner core of the organoid and the microstructural remodeling of its outer cortex.

Surface tension controls the onset of gyrification in brain organoids

Cerebral organoids at the air-liquid interface generate diverse nerve tracts with functional output

A modified brain-organoid culture is adapted to cerebral organoids, leading to improved neuronal survival and axon outgrowth, revealing a remarkable self-organization of corticofugal and callosal tracts with a functional output.
