SCIENCE A comprehensive 'parts list' of the brain built from its components, the cells In-depth analysis sorts cells from the cerebral cortex into 133 types, lays groundwork to explore function Neuroscientists have moved one step closer to understanding the complete list of cell types in the brain. In the most comprehensive study of its kind to date, the researchers sorted cells from the cortex, the outermost shell and the cognitive center of the brain, into 133 different 'cell types' based on the genes the cells switch on and off.
