Spark Gap Potential in The Human Brain

This post is quite interesting with regards to the human brain being a spark gap tranceiver.

According to a comment, there is quite a bit going on in the way of spark gap potential:

"Based on a figure of ~86 billion neurons per adult brain * 0.29 ( "sparks" (action potentials) a second * 60 secs = 1.5 trillion. But I stopped there, too daunted to try to count all smaller voltage changes. But...given there may be, say, 100 trillion synapses, and if all had a 90% failure rate, and followed the 0.29AP/s rate, you're looking at another 17.4 quadrillion events a minute?!"
