||"To investigate how the metabolic cost of the brain scales with
brain size and whether the metabolic cost per neuron increases
with neuronal size, it is necessary to examine how total energy
consumption relates to the number of neurons in different brains.
This analysis was made possible only recently, by the determination of numbers of neurons in the whole brain and its main
||"As illustrated in Table 4, the larger the number of neurons, the higher the total
caloric cost of the brain, and therefore the more time required to
be spent feeding in order to support the brain alone."
