Using light and electron microscopy, axon diameter, myelin sheath thickness (measured as number of myelin lamellae) and internodal length of alpha and gamma motor axons of the L7 ventral root and spinal cord segment were investigated in serial cross-sections. The CNS internodes of the alpha motor fibres had, on average, an axon diameter of 8.6 microns, 105 myelin lamellae and a length of about 560 microns. The CNS internodes of the gamma motor fibres had, on average, an axon diameter of 3.4… CONTINUE READING
