Neurotechnology Numbers Worth Knowing

In the tradition of Cell Biology by the Numbers, Physiology by Numbers, and Latency Numbers Every Programmer Should Know, here’s a collection of numbers worth knowing if you’re working in neurotechnology.

You can also download this list as Anki flashcards. Having them memorized and at your fingertips is great for sanity checking ideas.

I plan to keep growing this list and Anki deck in perpetuity, so if it’s missing your favorite numbers, please let me know!

Thanks to Eemaan Thind, Max Hodak, and Sumner Norman for contributions.
