Ohio State University researchers have used adult human skin cells to grow a nearly complete human brain. 

It's the size of a pencil eraser but has 99-percent of the genes in a fully-developed fetal brain.  The lab-grown brain will be used to help research cures for Alzheimer's disease and autism.
