Dude, where's my brain cells?

Memo for immediate release
University of Florida Center for Brain Studies

RE: Brain cells grown in laboratory

In an exciting advance for science, brain cells have been grown for ther first time in a laboratory that mimic the natural process of brain regeneration. The researchers said they were able to produce virtually unlimited quantities of brains cells. The process can lead to advances in transplant medicine and the production of new drugs with the potential to rebuild damaged nerve tissues. The head of the team Dr. Bjorn Scheffler said, "Our study shows for the first time the entire process that goes on in our brain for life. We can, in a dish, recapture the process in front of our eyes."

In a setback for the team the cells were destroyed in a kegger held to celebrate the discovery.
