Damage to axonal fibers in both central and peripheral nervous system leads to degeneration. The degeneration can be anterograde (Wallerian) in which injury to the cell body or proximal regions of the axon leads to degeneration in the axon distal to the damage. Retrograde degeneration is death of the cell body following axonal injury and can be seen… CONTINUE READING
