Different Types of the Connections & Neurons in the Brain

Postby zuckmitnick » Thu Sep 29, 2011 2:01 am

Hi everyone. First post for me, wish that I'd get much help! Thank you guys~ :D

As I believed, there must be some different types of neurons in the brain, some types are in charge of the storage of the information and some others may be in charge of the control or something... Well, I'm not majoring in biology, so I get confused.
And also, there should be different kinds of connections there between those neurons. Maybe some connections are used to strengthen the connectivity and some others are to weaken it.
These are something that maybe rely on nothing scientific but my own thoughts. I'm a geek and I'm on a project to simulate the brain. So if anyone knows something about the two questions above and anything about the specific structures within the brain, please just tell me and I appreciate it very much.

Come on.
No replies?
Some professionals please give me some guidance. I don't know even the direction of this thought is right.

A little help, please.

what kind of neurons would you like?
Yeah, some connections may be sensitizing while others desenzitizing, look for different neurotransmitters.

Cis or trans? That's what matters.

Well, in fact I don't quite know what the "kind" refers to. I'm a totally outsider of biology.
I'm on a project to simulate the brain. So I think getting to know anything about the types of neurons and the connections would help. ( For example, some neurons are responsible for the storage of text and some are for logic. Some kinds of connections are likely to be deactivated very quickly and some else may tend to maintain activated very long. I know this sounds naive. ^_^ Ask me if you don't get it.)
If that's kind of complicated to tell me some detailed info, please just tell where we can find a tutorial or something like that.

LOL - tutorial to a brain
If you make one, you will get the next Nobel Prize ;) :-D

Anyway, these types of neurons differ in spatial localization rather than in type of neuron. So, there are different centers responsible for different processes.
