Counting Neurons

Synopsis
Podcast. Interview with Dr. Suzana Herculano-Houzel, a neuroscientist who, with her colleagues, has developed a pioneering technique that has made it possible to accurately count the number of neurons in brains of all sizes. This has led to some surprises including the fact that the human brain contains an average of 86 billion neurons rather than 100 billion as had long been assumed. [64 minutes]
