into question the common assumption that the layers of the myelin sheath have a high electrical resistance. What Are the Functions of the The Structure and Function of Myelin Myelin is one of the fundamental adaptations of verte-Myelin Components? While the individual components may normally function brates. By limiting axonal depolarization to nodes of Ranvier, the periodic interruptions in myelin, it increases as part of the macromolecular structure of compact myelin, they have been examined… CONTINUE READING
