What is known about the distribution of the number of synapses - in a very rough sense?
The number is most certainly not distributed normally around one mean value of about 10,000 (because there are very different types of neurons).
More probable, there are some types of neurons with typical mean numbers of synapses (each distributed normally), which would give a distribution like this:
For the sake of simplicity I want to ask:
If we were to group numbers of synapses roughly into bins of powers of ten, how high would be the peaks, roughly?
