  • These are the glial cells of the peripheral nervous system and are located around the axons that they serve.
  • Invertebrates often have giant neurons and axons that provide special functions such as rapid action potential propagation.
  • Pioneer axon is the classification given to axons that are the first grow in a particular region.
  • The collection of secondary axons that do this are known as internal arcuate fibers.
  • The axons that make up nerves in the human peripheral nervous system can be classified based on their physical features and signal conduction properties.
  • Mauthner cells have large-diameter axons that run down the length of the spinal cord.
  • Sufficient damage to the axons that course through WMH can cause adequate interference with normal neuronal functions.
  • If an axon that is not fully developed is cut, the polarity can change and other neurites can potentially become the axon.
  • The forward signaling also promotes pruning of the axons that have reached into the terminal zone.
  • Some neurons such as photoreceptor cells, for example, do not have myelinated axons that conduct action potentials.
  • This neuron contains an axon that has split into two branches; one branch runs to the periphery and the other to the spinal cord.
  • However, the parts of axons that are beyond the retina, are myelinated.
  • These latter are the giant axons that the work of Alan Hodgkin and Andrew Huxley made famous.
  • They record the electrical activity of the axons that have grown through the cone, and are insulated with Teflon.
  • When this happens, follower axons that depend exclusively of pioneer guidance frequently detach from them.
  • This pioneer axon is of crucial importance because the new axons that follow have a high propensity for forming contacts with well-established synapses.
  • This structure is composed of white matter that is composed of millions of axons that have their dendrites and terminal buttons projecting in both the right and left hemisphere.
  • The optic nerve is the bundle of axons that carry the visual signals from the eye to the brain.
  • The neurons of the dopaminergic pathways have axons that run the entire length of the pathway.
  • This time though, only 50% of the set of axons that innervate the orbicularis oris successfully reinnervate the original site.
