Which area in the brain has the highest number of synapses or connections? I couldn't find any reliable link on the internet.

    $\begingroup$ Do you mean density (synapses/cubic cm) or total number (larger brain areas will likely have more synapses)? And what do you mean with brain area? Functional areas, or structural areas? Telling us why do you want to know this may help the community to pace your question in its context, and aid in answering your question. $\endgroup$ – AliceD Apr 5 '20 at 18:56

    $\begingroup$ I meant density. I meant structural areas. $\endgroup$ – CuriousMind9 Apr 6 '20 at 11:26
