Comments "...[researchers] took the upper value of mean rate, 4 Hz. Thus, for rodents, the ATP usage on signaling by action potentials and glutamate will be 4(3.84×10^8 + 3.28×10^8)=2.85×10^9 ATPs/neuron/s. Adding the consumption on the resting potential gives a total rate of 3.29×10^9 ATPs/neuron/s at 4 Hz mean action potential frequency."
