Single cell atlases map brain cell types at high precision. A platoon of 21 recent papers published at the journal Science journals, including one by our new group leader Kimberly Siletti, sheds light in brain’s diversity. Prof. Jeroen Pasterkamp has given an interview to NRC (In Dutch) titled “Een atlas van een van de grootste mysteries die we kennen: het menselijk brein” to discuss the developments in the field.
Efforts led by the Brain Initiative Cell Census Network will greatly enhance the field of Neuroscience. We, researchers at the Translational Neuroscience department and UMC Utrecht Brain Center, will continue to invest on this technology and actively contribute to the process.
