How many cell types exist in the brain?

This does sound like progress.
It would be nice if Spectrum did updates.
The work “provides a real blueprint for the diversity of cell types that exist in the brain,” says Tomasz Nowakowski, assistant professor of anatomy at the University of California, San Francisco, who was not involved in the studies. It solves what has “been a problem for over 100 years.”

Apparently, a lot. I had no idea there were so many.
It occurs to me that that's both good and bad. It makes it much harder to figure out what is causing what, but at the same time, it makes it possible to develop more targeted therapies that won't affect other functions.
In short, once we figure out what does what, it'll all be good, but until then there will be a lot of unknowns.
It'd be nice if they responded to their readers as well.

Yes.... Brain research should be a top priority.
I believe most all of our man made problems are due to brain and personality disorders.

I thank God that this research is being done and pray that soon there will be more help for my son.
Spectrum is another name for Simon Foundation they were never very informative or willing to answer questions. austimspeaks.org has never done the job can did either.
