Abstract

Myelinated nerve fibers are designed in an optimal manner which requires tuning of conduction time with millisecond precision. This involves the highly coordinated differentiation of axons and myelin-forming glial cells; the nature of the signals involved in this axon-glial cell dance are beginning to be elucidated.
