Cell types




Basket Cell GABA Interneuron that form a dense plexus of terminals around the soma of target cells
Dentate gyrus mossy cell Glutamate Link Dentate gyrus mossy cell
Excitatory Cell Glutamate Non-specific excitatory cell
Hippocampal Granule Cell GABA
Inhibitory Cell GABA Non-specific inhibitory cell
Interneuron GABA Interneuron
Narrow Interneuron GABA Narrow waveform neuron
Purkinje Cell GABA Huge neurons in the cerebellum, a type of Golgi I multipolar neuron
Pyramidal Cell Glutamate Type of multipolar neuron found in areas of the brain including the cerebral cortex, the hippocampus, and the amygdala. Pyramidal neurons are the primary excitation units of the mammalian prefrontal cortex and the corticospinal tract. Pyramidal neurons are also one of two cell types where the characteristic sign, Negri bodies, are found in post-mortem rabies infection
Renshaw Cell Glycine Inhibitory interneurons found in the gray matter of the spinal cord, and are associated in two ways with an alpha motor neuron.
Stellate Cell GABA Stellate cells are any neuron that have a star-like shape formed by dendritic processes radiating from the cell body.
Unknown Not determined A cell that has not been classified
Wide Interneuron GABA Wide waveform interneuron
