Is there an approximate figure of the total number of action potentials in the human brain? It's my understanding that there are ~ 60 billion neurons in the brain with ~ 100 trillion connections between them. Plus there are graded responses between those connections. Is there an estimated figure for what the total might be?
If firing rate is from 1 Hz to 200 Hz, 100 trillion to 20 quadrillion synaptic firings. Neuronal (say, measured from soma) firings will add up to 86 billion to 17.2 trillion action potentials per second.
