I guess this will be a new industry. Man-made brains. It's like McDonald's, for Zombies.

Lab-grown brain bits open windows to the mind — and a maze of ethical dilemmas

"Even as scientists express skepticism that brain organoids will ever come close to sentience, they’re the ones calling for a broad discussion, and perhaps more oversight. The questions range from the practical to the fantastical. Should researchers make sure that people who donate their cells for organoid research are informed that they could be used to make a tiny replica of parts of their brain? If organoids became sophisticated enough, should they be granted greater protections, like the rules that govern animal research? Without a consensus on what consciousness or pain would even look like in the brain, how will scientists know when they’re nearing the limit?"
