The number of neurons in the neocortex is the product of the size of the preneuronogenetic founder population, that is, the number of proliferative cells that are present at the onset of neuronogenesis, and neuronogenetic amplification occurring as neurons are being produced. The amount of neuronogenetic amplification is determined by changes in the output fraction, Q, from 0 to 1, over a fixed number of cell cycles. Greater neuronogenetic amplification would occur across species if the number… CONTINUE READING
