cortex cell density

Hello, Ekki.

If we estimate 10^11 cells of all kinds per brain and a brain volume of
approximately 1000 cm^3 or 10^6 mm^3, it follows that the cell density is about
10^5 per mm^3.  If you are only interested in neurons, the density will be
lower than this - about 10^4 per mm^3.  Is that near enough for your purposes?
