Hi mrjmf, The commonly cited number is one hundred billion (100,000,000,000). For example, see: "Building Baby?s Brain: The Basics" from The University of Georgia/College of Family and Consumer Sciences http://www.fcs.uga.edu/pubs/PDF/FACS01-1.pdf "Brain Development" from Purdue University Provider-Parent Partnerships http://www.ces.purdue.edu/providerparent/PDF%20Links/Brain%20Development.pdf "How important are the first three years of a baby's life?", an interview with David Steinberg, M.D. on the NYU Child Study Center website http://www.aboutourkids.org/aboutour/articles/2000baby.html "Brain Cells and Neural Connections" on BrainRespiration.com http://www1.brainrespiration.com/newsscience.cfm?articleID=17 Search Strategy I wasn't getting anywhere searching with queries like "brain cells born OR birth", so I took a guess and searched for "billion brain cells born" and found plenty of pages like those listed above, all with the same 100 billion number. --efn
