Neuronal Behaviour in Learning and Memory May Be Influenced by Glial Cells

Are neurons all they’re cracked up to be? For decades, we have believed the neuron to be the king of all cells. Neurons are grown at a rate of 250,000 cells per minute in utero, culminating in a fully grown brain with 100 billion neurons, and over 100 trillion neuronal connections. This is more than all…
