The "axonal flow" theory holds that the nerve cell body is continuously forming new cytoplasm which enters the axon and travels along its length. This theory was formulated by Weiss and collaborators (Weiss and Hiscoe, '48) to account for the accumulation of material in front of a nerve constriction and for the high concentration of enzymes appearing in the proximal stump of a sectioned nerve (Sawyer, '46; Hebb and Waites, '56; Friede, '59). For instance, since the so-called neurosecretory… CONTINUE READING
