What is Myelin?
Myelin is an insulating sheath of proteins and fats that cover axons. Axons are “cables” or “wires” that connect the neurons that make up our nerves and nervous system! The function of myelin is to prevent the decay of action potentials (electrical signals) that travel from one neuron to another. I like to use the analogy of rubber on the outside of copper wires to help keep the electrical current from spilling out of the wire. Myelinated axons conduct action potentials more quickly and efficiently! Myelin is a white material and is abundant in the brain this is what we call white matter in our brains.
