I'm reading now the Campbell biology book (10th), and on page 1063 is written:
In all but the simplest animals, specialized populations of neurons handle each stage of information processing.
What does it mean "specialized populations of neurons"? I always knew that there is a population in biological hierarchy of creatures rather than the cells which assemble the creatures.
It's just a specialized group of neurons. You can call a group of cells a population of cells. They are specialized because those particular neurons carry out a specific function.
