Axon
...  of collateral axons occur. These are axons resulting from the branching of the original axons. Schwann cells, on the other hand, are neuroglia, which form protective coverings in the form of Myelin sheaths. The Myelin sheaths insulate the axons and are responsible in stopping almost all electrical flow coming through the membrane of the cell. Types of neuroglia These neuroglial cells  ...

Myelination
...  neuron definitely has a Myelin coating. However, not all have an adequate amount of it. Myelin supports conduction of the cells. It is known as the white lipid protein that supports Myelination of a certain ganglia. Myelination, on the other hand, is a process in which the neurolemmocyte or oligodendrocyte surrounds a certain part of the axon or dendrite. It occurs both in the central  ...

Neurolgia
...  It has six categories: oligodendrocytes, neurolemmocytes, microglia, ependymal, astrocytes and ganglionic gliocytes. Take a look at the characteristics of each. Neurolemmocytes - It makes up the Myelin layers, the ones surrounding the axon cells in the peripheral nervous system. Oligodendrocytes - It has the same role with the neurolemmocytes, except for the fact that it works in the  ...

Spinal Cord
...  Most of the parts in the spinal cord are made up with gray matter, and is also encompassed by white matter. The gray matter, which makes up the majority of the spinal cord is made up of neuroglia, unMyelinated association neurons and nerve cell bodies. The white matter on the other hand is composed of Myelinated fibers that brings the motor and sensory neurons. At the core of the gray matter, it  ...
