Sample text

However, proximal transection of afferent axonal outputs of cortical neurons will result in the irreversible functional loss of the neuron since reinnervation of the target is not possible. 47 Neuronal or axonal damage unrelated to axonal transection may also result in apoptotic neuronal death. 48 This implies a diffusible factor in the CSF mediates neuronal damage and death. If demyelination, deafferentation, or inflammatory mediators secreted by activated microglia cause neuronal apoptosis, then therapeutic intervention may help preserve the neuron and maintain the neuronal circuitry.

13 Cytoskeletal alterations in acutely demyelinated axons are not unexpected, as one of the functions of myelin is to stabilize the axonal cytoskeleton to maximize transport to pre-synaptic terminals. Phosphorylation increases the extension of sidearms from the neurofilaments and this in turn increases interfilament spacing and axonal diameter. 15 Many of the ovoids were transected ends of axons. Upon transection of a CNS axon, the axonal segment distal to the transection will degenerate (Fig. 1(a)).
