Sentence Examples with the word Axon

In the severed axon the degeneration is first evident in a breaking down of the naked nerve filaments of the motor end plate.

On the other hand, in some neurons, after severance of the axon from the rest of the cell (spinal motor cell), the whole nerve cell as well as the severed axon degenerates, and may eventually die and be removed.

This indicates that the conjunction between the conducting substance of the dendrons and that of the axon can be effected without the intermediation of the cell body.
