Myelin Layer

The myelin layer is a white fatty and protein covering that insulates and protects a nerve fiber. The concept of myelin can be thought of as similar to the insulating coatings that typically surround electrical wiring. Just like insulators are needed to protect electrical wires, myelin is needed to protect our nerve fibers which incidentally, conduct electrical current also. Myelin is made up of roughly about 80% fat, and about 20% protein. [...]
