Axon
...  based on their types. Schwann cells or neurolemma cells, as previously mentioned, 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,  ...

Cerebrospinal Fluid
...  the friction in the area by serving as a cushion or buffer to prevent mechanical stress to your most vital organ. Production Cerebrospinal fluid is the product of the choroid plexus. The modified ependymal cells, blood vessels and the ventricular walls are responsible for the continuous secretion of the fluid. Once formed, it circulates from the lateral ventricles, third ventricle, aqueduct  ...

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.  ...
