Do estimates exist of estimated neuron counts in average normal
human brains?  If so what range is generally accepted by 
If such estimates exists they may have some relation, however
remote, to the size computer, in terms of functional memory,
which would be expected to be able to approach any beginning 
emulation of human brain function.
Thank you.
