Neurons: If Connected All, It’ll Be Over 600,000 Miles

Neurons, nerve cells in the brain

If all neurons of the human brain are connected, it will be over 600,000 miles.

Neurons make up a network of brains called “nerve circuits.”

Various electrical signals are transmitted through neurons and a huge amount of information is processed.

Neurons are divided into rod-shaped “axons” like tree trunks and “dendrites” like branches.

If you connect all the axons and dendrites in one person’s brain, the length will be over 600,000 miles.

The human brain is made up of such large and complex networks.
