Hi Audrey,

There are more than one type of cell in the brain, these include astrocytes, microglia and other structural cells. Whilst the neurons do not have centrioles these other cells can grow into tumours. There are a few instances where neurons form brain tumours but these occur when the nervous system is in early stages of development.

I hope that makes sense!
