Understanding how the brain computes information requires a deep understanding of how the inhibitory and excitatory neuronal types within specified circuits are connected, as well as a detailed description of their functional properties. Recent advances in molecular, neurochemical, and/or anatomical techniques have led to an explosion in the number of known excitatory and inhibitory neuronal types in any given region of the brain, and the endeavor to understand neural computations is a challenge.
