Abstract

The sum total of the length of all the nerve cell processes (dendrites and axons) in a given volume of brain substance provides, in a sense, a measure of the information-handling capacity of the nerve tissue. From a different point of view, we may take it as indicating the complexity of the neural operations performed there.
