Making A Better Brain: Scientists Just Discovered a New Kind of Brain Cell

By Patrick Caughill,   August 10, 2017 IN BRIEF: Researchers from the Salk Institute and the University of California San Diego have discovered a way to categorize neurons down to the molecular level. This will help scientists to compose a “parts list” of the brain and, perhaps, create interfaces that improve its functionality. New Neurons Mapping exactly how the human brain functions is, perhaps, the most promising step when it comes to transforming how humans operate on a fundamental level. Mapping how the brain works down to the molecular level could help us find new ways to combat neurological and...
