There seem to be more NTs than needed for simple excitation and 
inhibitation,unless the receptor sites are highly variable.  Why are there 
so many NTs? How many are there? Have they all been discovered? Is the 
relative proportion of different NTs siginificant? NB:I am not asking for 
a detailed account of what each one does. I couldn't handle it.
