It taskes 1,000 neurons (tech) to model a neuron (rat)

Deepmind built a DL model with 5 to 8 levels and up to a 1,000 nodes in order to forecast with 99% confidence the firing of a single rat neuron

How Computationally Complex Is a Single Neuron?

“If each biological neuron is like a five-layer artificial neural network, then perhaps an image classification network with 50 layers is equivalent to 10 real neurons in a biological network”

“the authors investigated which features of the pyramidal neuron inspired the much greater complexity in their five-to-eight-layer deep neural networks. They concluded that it came from the dendritic trees, and from a specific receptor that receives chemical messengers on the surface of the dendrites
