This seems silly, but I am confused about the number of inputs to the neural network (net.numInputs). I have a matrix of size 10000x259, are the number of input sources in this case 10000 (number of observations=10000, number of features=259)?

According to the MATLAB Neural Network manual:
"net.numInputs is the number of input sources, not the number of elements in
an input vector (net.inputs{i}.size)."

Thank you,
