Sep 19, 2018 · The full process takes about 64 days. During spermatogenesis, your testicles make several million sperm per day — about 1,500 a second. By the end of a full sperm production cycle, you can regenerate up to 8 billion sperm. This may seem like overkill, but you release anywhere from 20 to 300 million sperm cells in Author: Tim Jewell.
As you might imagine, nerve cells (also called neuronal cells) are very specialized - they do a very specific, complicated job in the body. As a result, their structures are very specialized - they have a small "cell body" and then long processes that branch off the to connect with other neurons or other types of cells such as muscles.
Nerve cells can take approx. 60 years to divide Red Blood cells can take approx. 120 days to divide. White Blood cells can take 1 day to 10 years. Platelet cells take about 6 days to divide.
