Myelin

Disease

Myelin is a dielectric (electrically insulating) material that forms a layer, the myelin sheath, usually around only the axon of a neuron. It is essential for the proper functioning of the nervous system. It is an outgrowth of a type of glial cell.The production of the myelin sheath is called myelination. In humans, myelination begins in the 14th week of fetal development, although little...More
