To investigate the diversity of cell types across the mouse neocortex at the transcriptional level, 15,413 cells were profiled from the primary visual cortex (VISp), and 10,068 cells from the anterior lateral motor cortex (ALM). These two regions represent distant poles of the neocortex and perform distinct functions. Analysis of these transcriptional profiles reveals 133 transcriptomic cell types. These types are divided into 61 GABAergic neuron types and 16 non-neuronal types, most of which are shared across both cortical areas, and 56 glutamatergic neuron types, most of which segregate by cortical region.
