Nerve cells in the human brain can 'count'

Nerve cells in the human brain can 'count' - https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2018/09/180920115526.htm

How do we know if we're looking at three apples or four? Researchers were able to demonstrate that some brain cells fire mainly for quantities of three, others for quantities of four and others for other quantities. A similar effect can be observed for digits: In humans, the neurons activated in response to a '2' are for instance not the same as the neurons activated for a '5'.
