I'm doing some computer brian modelling, and I need some figures about neurons.
Firstly, approximately how many neurons occupy unit volume of cortex(neglecting
white matter)? Approximately how far do the axons and dendrites of cortical
neurons(particularly those in area V1) reach? And, what proportion of neurons
within its reach would a single neuron contact?
Thanks in advance for any info or references,
