The undulating course of nerve fibres and the optical effect of that course, i.e. the bands of Fontana, were studied in the peripheral nerves of the adult rat using light microscopy. The arrangement of collagen fibres in the endoneurium of these nerves was evaluated using transmission and scanning electron microscopy. No nerve fibres undulation was noted on the intracranial sections of the cranial nerves or on the spinal roots. In their endoneurium a few, irregularly arranged collagen fibrils… CONTINUE READING
