Microglia small cells that move in inflamed brain tissue carrying on phagocytes - repair damage
oligodendrocytes form myelin sheaths on axons in the CNS
Schwann cells form myelin sheaths of axons in the PNS
White matter tissue composed primarily of myelinated axons (nerves or tracts)
Gray Matter tissue composed primarily of cell bodies and unmyelinated fibers
Endoneurium surrounds individual fibers within a nerve
Perineurium surrounds a group (fascicle) of nerve fibers
