  • The axon of a nerve cell is, in general, responsible for transmitting information over a relatively long distance.
  • They made their discovery from the giant axon of the Atlantic squid.
  • The best known action potentials are pulse-like waves that travel along the axons of neurons.
  • The axons of the remaining twelve nerves extend beyond the brain and are considered part of the peripheral nervous system.
  • These cells, which cover the axons of the neurons in the brain, are named Schwann cells after him.
  • It is important to contrast this with the all-or-none law propagation of the action potential down the axon of the neuron.
  • An electrochemical wave called an action potential travels along the axon of a neuron.
  • Unlike axons of other animals, squid axons are very large.
  • Horizontal lines represent axons of input neurons while vertical lines represent output neurons.
  • The axons of the neurons are damaged probably by B-Cells, though currently no relationship has been established with the relapses or the attacks.
  • They inserted an internal electrode into the giant axon of a squid and began to apply a current.
  • Once this threshold is reached a signal is passed along the axon of the neuron into the spinal cord.
  • Recordings from axons of the Johnston's organ indicate its sensitivity to electric fields.
  • The sheath enables action potentials to travel faster than in unmyelinated axons of the same diameter, whilst using less energy.
  • Lead causes the axons of nerve cells to degenerate and lose their myelin coats.
  • Peripherin is widely expressed in the cell body and axons of neurons in the peripheral nervous system.
  • The brown eyes are of average size, egg-shaped, placed symmetrical in parallel lines of the oblong axon of the skull, with enough distance between each other.
  • Connections between neurons are called synapses and they occur between the axon of one neuron and the dendrite of another.
  • Most external input comes from the adjoining entorhinal cortex, via the axons of the so-called perforant path.
  • The M-cells receive their information from the axons of parasol cells exiting the optic tract.
