3D printer creates brain tissue that acts like the real thing
By squirting cells from a 3D printer, researchers have created tissue that looks—and acts—like a chunk of brain. In recent years, scientists have learned how to load up 3D printers with cells and other scaffolding ingredients to create living tissues, but making realistic brainlike constructs has been a challenge. Now, one team has shown that, by modifying its printing techniques, it can print and combine multiple subtypes of cells that better mimic signaling in the human brain. “It’s remarkable that [the researchers] can replicate” how brain cells work, says Riccardo Levato, a regenerative...

News at a glance: Weird early trees, CERN ’s next big collider, and protecting U.S. gray wolves
PALEONTOLOGY Rare fossil reveals weird early tree The earliest trees, from nearly 400 million years ago, are known mostly from fossils of their trunks; their leaves and canopy shapes have remained a mystery. A newly reported, 350-million-year-old tree found in Canada provides a vivid answer for one such primordial species: As if having a perpetual bad hair day, a thick crown of spiky leaves stuck out perpendicularly from the trunk . Scientists named the tree Sanfordiacaulis densifolia , after the owner of the New Brunswick quarry where they found five specimens. The fossils, amo...

Why I Stopped Being A “Good” Cancer Patient
“You are allergic to your oral chemotherapy,” explains my oncology team at a recent appointment. “We are going to try a newer drug,” I am on my fourth attempt to find an oral treatment suitable for both my body and my cancer, so that I can maintain a remission that took three years and a stem cell transplant to achieve. “We want to get ahead of it before it gets ahead of us.” In my headphones, Weezer achingly croons, “Say it ain’t so, your drug is a heartbreaker.” [time-brightcove not-tgx=”true”] Since being diagnosed with phase three chronic myeloid leu...
