I don't think we're going to get a complete knowledge of how
different kinds of neurons work, nor a detailed map showing how they
interconnect without the above or visa versa. I think they are both
going to be a long, interdependent, one enables the other, road that
will be achieved roughly together in a step wise (many many
interdependent steps) fashion.
