The pre- and post-scission neutron multiplicities have been extracted for the 220,222,224Th nuclei for the excitation energy range of 40 MeV to 64 MeV using the National Array of Neutron Detectors (NAND). The Th isotopes are populated from the fusion reaction of 16O+204,206,208Pb systems in order to investigate the dynamics of fusion-fission reactions using the neutron multiplicity as a probe. The theoretical calculations were performed using the Bohr-Wheeler fission width as well as the dissipative dynamical fission width from Kramers prescription. It is observed that the Bohr-Wheeler fission width underestimates the pre-scission yields to a large extent. A large amount of dissipation is required in the Kramers width to fit the observed pre-scission neutron multiplicities
