FOR more than a decade it has been known1–3 that glial cells are capable of forming new myelin sheaths around demye-linated axons in the central nervous system (CNS) but it is not known whether the new myelin is formed into segments bounded by true nodes and, if it is, whether the internodal length is appropriate to the axon diameter or inappropriately short as in remyelinated peripheral fibres. The different relationship between the myelin forming cell and axon in central and peripheral fibres… CONTINUE READING
