Stem Cell Biology: God in a Test Tube? We stand on the threshold of a new era of cell biology. We evolved over millions of years from a single cell in the primordial soup of the cooling earth, a process which is 15 c. n. svendsen replayed millions of times as the human fetus develops. As we struggle to understand this remarkable event where a few billion cells come together to form human beings, the reductionists are beginning to win. We are starting to control the very process of life ± cellular division and differentiation.

Our society already makes decisions about whether to proceed with human clinical experimentation, in the absence of an absolute certainty about the trials' outcomes. Clinical trials are subdivided into phase I, II, III, and IV trials. Clinical trials start as phase I trials, which are essentially toxicity trials. The aim is to see whether, in moving a new experimental treatment from animals to humans, unforeseen toxicity will occur. As a matter of fact, phase I clinical trials of anticancer agents are dose escalation studies in which the new drugs' dose is increased until any specific toxicity appears.

Yet the entire brain is there. What is missing is experience. Experience is known to shape the brain from the moment we are born.
