Schwertz Distinguished Professor of Life Sciences Nathan Urban and his former postdoctoral research associate Shreejoy Tripathy have created a database of types of neurons and their standardized activity. The data, culled from over 10,000 published papers, is available at and will allow neuroscientists studying the brain to search for known neural types that have the same properties and the published studies investigating those types.
