Axon

...  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 the central nervous system of dirt and debris. The axon, therefore, can only work efficiently  ...

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.  ...
