Layers of myelin Axons Mitochondria Schwann cell cytoplasm Schwann cell nucleus A B Fig. 6 The relationship of a Schwann cell and myelin in a transverse section of (A) a myelinated axon and (B) non-myelinated axons. g. muscle and gland cells. Afferent nerves enter the spinal cord by dorsal roots and efferent nerves leave by ventral roots (Fig.

The latter is the equivalent of repair by fibroblasts in the rest of the body. Oligodendrocytes. These cells produce myelin which ensheaths some axons in the CNS. Microglia. These are small cells and they are the only nerve tissue cells which originate from mesoderm. In response to inflammation, they undergo phagocytosis and aid repair; in this they resemble macrophages (Chapters 4 and 8).
