The Wonderful Human Brain

According to the novel computations of a renowned histologist, who has

been calculating the aggregate cell forces of the human brain, the

cerebral mass is composed of at least 300,000,000 of nerve cells, each

an independent body, organism, and microscopic brain so far as concerns

its vital functions, but subordinate to a higher purpose in relation to

the functions of the organ; each living a separate life individually,

though socially subject to a higher law of function.

The lifetime of a nerve cell he estimates to be about sixty days, so

that 5,000,000 die every day, about 200,000 every hour, and nearly 3,500

every minute, to be succeeded by an equal number of their progeny; while

once in every sixty days a man has a new brain.
