Nerve cell power of inhibition affected by myelination

February 22, 2022

Nerve cells or neurons are connected to each other in a network of structures called axons that transmit electrical impulses. Axons are often wrapped in a fatty substance called myelin, which protects the cells below like a sheath. Myelinated axons in the brain, for one, play pivotal roles in brain function – the loss of […]
