comment What is the most complex artificial neural network created to date?
@Jeff practical ANNs like Blue Brain always go for biological realism, obviously an ANN that isn't representative of an NN isn't acceptable but that's not a good usable metric. The metrics I always hear to compare ANNs is always either neuron/synapse count or complexity compared to an animal (simple = C. elegans, complex = cat, Holy Grail = Human). If there's a better measure I'm not aware of it but would love to know of it

@Jeff for the purposes of this question number of synapses should be sufficient as that (and count of neurons, which correlates with it) is how artificial ones are generally gauged. I've edited the question. Some better reading on neural net complexity is here: math.bu.edu/people/mkon/pppp11.pdf

@ArtemKaznatcheev what does neurobiology have to do directly with either in this context? They're both different concepts but neural-network is usually used to refer to artificial ones these days so just that one of the two does make sense.

Fidgeting has been found to be a focus aid, I'll try and find some articles
