I am trying to answer a reader's question for the monthly
FYI column in Popular Science magazine. Can someone point
me in the right direction, i.e., to an answer or to someone
doing research in this area? Here's the question:

     How much energy does it take to think a single thought?


Thanks, in advance, for your help.
