Lesioni del sistema nervoso periferico (SNP)

Riassunto

Come cavi elettrici, i nervi periferici raccolgono fasci di fibre, ciascuna composta da un assone e da una guaina di mielina; l’assone è l’elemento conduttore, la mielina è l’elemento isolante che impedisce la propagazione trasversale dell’impulso nervoso.
