Watson, Charles; Provis, Jan; Herculano-Houzel, Suzana


How does the number of motor neurons in the brain correlate with the muscle mass to be controlled in the body? Numbers of motor neurons are known to be adjusted during development by cell death, but the change in the percentage of surviving motor neurons
