An X-ray scattering study was performed on optic nerves dissected from rats aged from ten days to one year. The spectra were analysed using the procedure described in the previous papers of this series. Each experiment yields the values of a variety of parameters: the average D and the variance sigma D of the repeat distance, the average number mean value of N of motifs per crystallite, the fraction alpha loose of myelin that does not belong to the compact sheaths, the sets [idiff(h/D)] and… CONTINUE READING
