comment Single long axon vs serial neurons
If you want to reduce the variance in signal transmission with n serial steps, then you need to add more steps. Therefore to achieve signal transmission with really low variance, you either want a single axon (case A) or really lot of them connected in series (case B). May be overall, case A is not so bad compared to case B not to be selected for.

Thanks for the references. I'll probably wait for few more days before accepting it as answer. Let's see if someone can comment on why autapse are rare.
