Comments See PMID 10857184 p.21 top paragraph for same value: "The complexity of CNS development is staggering. In mice a total of approximately 75 million neurons and 25 million glial cells are generated, moved, connected, and integrated into hundreds of different circuits over a period of 1 month." From primary source p.41 3rd paragraph: "The brain of this individual contained approximately 75 million neurons, 23 million glial cells, 7 million blood vessel–related endothelial cells, and 3–4 million miscellaneous pial, ependymal, and choroidal cells."
