I think we'll all be a while digesting these findings from the NIH BRAIN Cell Census Network (BICCN) distributed as 24 associated papers published in Science, Science Advances, and Science Translational Medicine. But I wanted to pass this along as soon as possible; this press release came out today. The papers "detail the exceptionally complex diversity of cells in the human brain and the nonhuman primate brain. The studies identify similarities and differences in how cells are organized and how genes are regulated." As the press release notes, " The findings also set the stage for the BRAIN Initiative Cell Atlas Network." It's not an atlas just yet (what would that even look like?) but it's a step along the way.
