Where do brain cells come from?

Yes, from the brain.

Today we observed (it was a first!) the process of collecting brain cells from a mouse.

Sacrifice | chop | open | detach | open | identify | detach | slice | isolate.

The collected cells are then kept for some days in a warmer (as in: the opposite of a freezer) – a Cell Culture.

Did you know cells have to be fed?
