However, there are no model systems to study the development and function of human thalamus. Here, we present a protocol to generate regionally specified human brain organoids that recapitulate the development of the thalamus using human pluripotent stem cells (hPSCs). Thalamic organoids can be used to study human thalamus development, to model related diseases,…
