  • sheath
  • Myelin promotes the conduction of nerve cell impulses by forming a sheath around their projections, the so-called axons, at specific locations acting like the plastic insulation around a power cord. (bio-medicine.org)
  • In the central nervous system, myelin develops when oligodendrocytes, which are a type of brain cell, repeatedly wrap their cellular processes around the axons of nerve cells forming a compact stack of cell membranes, a so-called myelin sheath. (bio-medicine.org)
  • myelin
  • This is possible because the specialized nerve cell axonal projections involved in conducting impulses are coated at specific intervals with myelin, which acts as an insulating layer. (bio-medicine.org)
  • study
  • The breakthrough study, published in the journal Nanoscale, opens the doors to the use of these novel structures as a painless interface between nerve ends and prosthetic limbs. (labcritics.com)
  • In the study, the PEDOT was placed in a tube, along with other biologic and synthetic materials, and grafted into the severed leg nerve of a rat. (med-chemist.com)
  • Most interesting is the other study, plastic surgeons designed a cup containing cells and muscle that fits around the severed leg nerve of a rat. (med-chemist.com)
  • injury
  • Common sites of injury include the elbow, where the nerve passes through the two heads of the pronator teres muscle (pronator syndrome) and in the carpal tunnel (CARPAL TUNNEL SYNDROME). (bioportfolio.com)
  • cases
  • We observed two cases of neuropraxia of deep branch of radial nerve that occurred after dorsal (Thompson) approach for radius fractures. (thefreedictionary.com)
  • Since all face nerves are closely connected to each other the ear ache in some cases may be associated with pain in the throat, sinuses, and other. (amazonaws.com)
