some researchers say this would be a step too far.
Martin Coath, from the Cognition Institute at the University of
Plymouth, questioned why anyone would ever want to create a 'real'
human brain that was 'fully working' would be conscious, have hopes,
dreams, feel pain, and would ask questions about what we were doing
to it,' he said.
we have grown in the lab, but on a much simpler level than a human
brain, might be hooked up to electronic eyes, ears, and hands and be
taught to do something - maybe something that is as sophisticated as
many simple living creatures.
