Morphology of central nervous system axons

Asao Hirano, Josefina F. Llena

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

This chapter discusses the fundamental structure of the normal central myelinated axons, as revealed by transmission electron microscopy. Topics covered include the relationship between myelin and axon the central nervous system, cross section of the myelin sheath, cross section of the axon, longitudinal views of the myelin sheath and the axon, model of the myelin sheath, and comparison of central and peripheral myelinated axons.
