what does the CNS (central nervous system) consist of brain and spinal cord
what does the CNS (central nervous system) consist of brain and spinal cord
what does the CNS (central nervous system) consist of brain and spinal cord
parts of a neuron (6) dendrites - axon - cell body - myelin - nodes of ranvier - neurilemma
what does the PNS consist of somatic and autonomic
conducts nerve pulses for a neuron dendrite
what does the PNS consist of somatic and autonomic
conducts nerve pulses for a neuron dendrite
parts of a neuron (6) dendrites - axon - cell body - myelin - nodes of ranvier - neurilemma
transmits impulses away from cell body axon
conducts nerve pulses for a neuron dendrite
conducts nerve pulses for a neuron dendrite
transmits impulses away from cell body axon
conducts a nerve impulse from nucleus to axon cell body
condition where the myelin sheaths of a myelinated axon degenerate multiple sclerosis
white fatty substance that surrounds axon to provide insulation and nutrients - allows nerve impulses to skip down the axon for much quicker travel myelin
conducts a nerve impulse from nucleus to axon cell body
condition where the myelin sheaths of a myelinated axon degenerate multiple sclerosis
white fatty substance that surrounds axon to provide insulation and nutrients - allows nerve impulses to skip down the axon for much quicker travel myelin
the sections between the myelinated sheaths on an axon nodes of Ranvier

the sections between the myelinated sheaths on an axon nodes of Ranvier
the sections between the myelinated sheaths on an axon multiple sclerosis
found strictly in PNS - the outer membrane of a Schwann cell - purpose is to regenerate damaged neuron neurilemma
speeds up nerve conduction bc the impulse skips down the axon via the myelin sheaths saltatory conduction
