How many neurons are in your brain?
There are 1,400 billion neurons in your brain. This means there are a total of about 9,200 billion connections between your neurons. (That means each neuron has a direct connection to about 20,000 other neurons!) And, a great many more connections than just the ones directly between it and your nerve cells.
Neurons are the electrical units that give your brain its unique characteristics, and how your brain works. These unit are very important to the health and well-being of your brain. Some of them are very simple and do all the basic work, while others work more complex like:
1) The neuron is a type of neuron called a pyramidal cell that is connected to a nerve cell called a pyramidal neuron.
2) The neuron can be one or more types of cells called glia, and also includes a cell called the axon.
3) There are a lot of nerve cells, called neurons, that contribute to how your brain works. Neurons have their own nerve system which is also called the basal ganglia, but that's for a different article. Neurons also control the way different parts of your brain work together to communicate.
