On occasions retinal axons can be myelinated elinated by Schwann cells. In the present experiments cultured autologous Schwann cells were injected into the optic disc of adult cats and the extent of Schwann cell myelination determined. Little if any Schwann cell myelination of retinal ganglion cell axons developed. Schwann cells were also injected into lesions in the cerebral cortex induced by ethidium bromide. In this site some Schwann cell remyelination was detected, but it was restricted to… CONTINUE READING
