Examples

  • The circles represent neurons and the lines represent dendritic and axonal connections between them.

    World Wide Mind

  • He explains that, with the kind of TBI, traumatic brain injury, that I have—a diffuse axonal injury—there can be widespread damage that is undetectable in fMRIs and other tests.

    The Memory Palace

  • He explains that, with the kind of TBI, traumatic brain injury, that I have—a diffuse axonal injury—there can be widespread damage that is undetectable in fMRIs and other tests.

  • The circles represent neurons and the lines represent dendritic and axonal connections between them.

    World Wide Mind

  • As the newly generated axonal nerves reached the paralyzed muscle tissue, the muscle began to twitch.

    The Autoimmune Epidemic

  • When the axonal nerves and myelin sheaths become damaged we become—in simplest terms—a bit like marionette puppets without any strings: nothing connects the brain and the toes, the central nervous system and the muscles in our arms or legs.

    The Autoimmune Epidemic

  • Voluntary exercise increases axonal regeneration from sensory neurons.

    The Autoimmune Epidemic

  • In transverse myelitis, demyelination and injury to bundles of axonal nerves occurs in focal areas of the spinal cord, often leading to permanent and severe paralysis.

    The Autoimmune Epidemic

  • On the other hand, exercise results in a marked increase in the production of stem cells and new motor neurons—those same motor neurons that are so essential for remyelinating myelin sheaths and axonal nerves in neurological autoimmune disease.

    The Autoimmune Epidemic

  • These myelin sheaths and axonal nerves are of critical importance in MS and transverse myelitis research.
