comment What is the latency between paired neuronal responses in the brain?
@Jonathan Ok, good to know. I'm a little shaky on terminology, but propagation delay sounds fitting, if it is the correct term for the time it takes for a "signal" to propagate from one neuron to the "next", i.e. the delay between the first neuron firing and the second neuron's potential being affected.

comment What is the latency between paired neuronal responses in the brain?
@AliceD What I am interested in is to get some idea about the (average/lowest/highest) latency between any two directly connected neurons in a network as complex as the brain.

comment Human perception of time depending on age
OTOH this would mean that endurance athletes would perceive their lives as very short :D

An intriguing thought, because this correlation exists also for adults, although typically when your heart rate rises, there's a lot of things happening in a short time span, so therefore you have a higher awareness of the individual moment.

comment Why 22 amino acids instead of 64?
@MadScientist: What works in E.Coli doesn't necessarily work in humans. I agree that "we" is a little ambiguous, but I think it's rather obvious, that I was talking about the naturally occurring complex organisms that we are (or at least anything remotely similar). But even then, your argument is void. You can create a surprising number of things in a lab, but whether they actually "function" is a different matter. Unless a strain of 13 amino-acid E.Coli can survive in competition with a strain of naturally occuring E.Coli in a typical habitat, "functioning" is not a word I'd choose.
