citation for 100 billion neurons in the brain
- Hi all,
For those interested, I've finally found a citation for the number of
neurons in the brain, entirely by changes whilst thumbing a copy of
"Biological Psychology" by James W. Kalat.
The wildly quoted value apparently comes from this reference.
R.W. Williams & K. Herrup (1988)
"The control of neuron number".
Annual Review of Neuroscience, 11, 423-453. (2)
www.cybernetics.demon.co.uk\BrainStat.html will be updated accordingly.
I would appreciate further information from anyone with immediate access
to this paper.
