20 Mar granule cells

A small cell type found in many areas of the brain that, like cells of Martinotti, sends axons up to the surface instead of down to the white matter. This lets them propagate new impulses and feedback toward the cortex surface. A cerebellum layer is called the granular layer due to the profusion of granule cells there.
