Axon
...  are important insulating layers. The astrocytes provide the vital support tissue of the central nervous system. The ependymal cells are found in the cavities of the central nervous system, while the Oligodendrocytes contain many dendrites and help in insulating the axon. The last type are the microglial cells, which have the function of eradicating foreign substances like bacteria and cleaning  ...

Myelination
...  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 nervous system and the peripheral nervous system. Myelin creates the white matter that could be seen in  ...

Neurolgia
...  is obtained from one of the primary cell layers responsible for creating the neurons- the ectoderm. 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.  ...
