  • Myelin Case Study

    or plaques that eat away at the myelin sheath. Studies show that this occurs in the white matter of the brain and spinal cord. In multiple sclerosis the myelin sheath is damaged in numerous areas of the axons. This slows and short circuits the nerve impulses traveling along the damaged axon. MS is not a curable disease, but there are some treatments that may help to reduce flare ups During an attack, white blood cells are drawn to the white matter in the CNS, which results in inflammation.

    ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis) is a degenerative disease that affects the neurons responsible for voluntary muscle control. Motor neurons are responsible for movement and to cause movement need to receive electrochemical messages from the brain and spinal cord(the central nervous system). When the brain sends a message to the rest of your body telling it how to move, the message first starts in the brain. These neurons in the brain, called upper neurons, then send the message to the spinal…
