Dear Colleagues

I wanted to alert you to a new publication and an associated resource.  We
just published a paper entitled:

Brain-wide analysis of electrophysiological diversity yields novel
categorization of mammalian neuron types in the Journal of Neurophysiology.

The paper is available at:
http://jn.physiology.org/content/jn/early/2015/03/20/jn.00237.2015.full.pdf

Also you might be interested in the associated web site:
http://neuroelectro.org

The paper describes an approach to collect, compile, validate and analyze
data from thousands of published papers describing neurophysiological
properties of many types of neurons.

In addition to the analyses that we performed, we believe that the data
contained in this dataset should be of interest to the broad
neurophysiology and modeling community.  The data set also would benefit
from scientists across the country and world providing feedback, proposing
extensions, reporting errors etc. We appreciate any feedback or comments.

Best,

Nathan Urban - CMU
Shreejoy Tripathy - CMU/UBC
Shawn Burton - CMU
Matt Geramita - U Pittsburgh
Rick Gerkin - CMU/ASU
