This paper, the following paper, and the Zago and Lacquaniti paper in the Other section are part of a special issue of this journal on ?Sensory integration, state estimation, and motor control in the brain: role of internal models.? Daniel Merfeld was co-Guest Editor and co-author of an editorial describing this special issue and this topic.

This paper, featured in news releases several weeks ago, used a rotating microbioreactor to culture the cells. The paper states: ?This NASA-derived ground-breaking technology has enabled CBEs [cord-blood-derived embryonic-like stem cells] to be grown in this 3-dimensional microgravity-simulating environment, optimizing nutrition and gas exchange, endogenous extracellular matrix production and cellular aggregation, for 360 degree tissue bioengineering.?
