||The tissue was embedded in paraffin wax. Four-micrometer-thick sections were cut from all blocks for H&E stains, and for immunohistochemistry in selected areas.
||21.4 billion neurons and 27.9 billion glial cells. Value for adult life (18 females, ages 18-93 in study). In newborn number of neocortical glial cells is 1/6 that of adult, although number of neocortical neurons equalls that of adult
