  GLOSSARY 

Axon - The thread-like part that comes out of a neuron and travels to a remote destination.  It carries electrical impulses, which are the messages from that neuron.

Myelin - The insulating sheath around an individual nerve fiber.  It serves to convert the axon of the nerve into a transmission line.

Ischemia - Lack of blood flow

Histology - Study of tissues using the microscope, often using special stains.
