295,734,134 as of July 2005 ~100,000,000,000,000
Some sources give the average
number of synapses on a
neuron as 1,000 to 10,000. 7 7/4/12 we lose 50,000 neurons a day after 20……. Until recently it was thought
that you are born with the all
the neurons you ll ever have.
It is now known that there is
some limited new cell
formation. However, some
estimates say we lose 50,000
neurons per/day between the
ages or 20 to 75. acending-- to the CNS0 affernt all mean the same thing Flow ofof Information
