Nerve Fibers

Summary Information: Nerve Fibers

Nerve Fibers: Nerve fibers are the cells that make up the central nervous system and the peripheral nervous system. Nerve fibers are unique, specialized cells that have the ability to transmit messages in the form of impulses from the body, through the nervous system, to the brain. Nerve fibers also process messages in the brain then transmit responses back to the body. Unlike other types of cells in the body, nerve fibers cannot divide and multiply. As a result, when a nerve fiber dies, it is not replaced.

Types of nerve fibers include sensory neurons, motor neurons, and interneurons. The basic structure of nerve fibers includes a cell body, dendrites, and axons. Conditions that can afflict nerve fibers include neuromuscular diseases, motor neuron diseases, multiple sclerosis, muscular dystrophy, sensory neuropathies, spinal cord transection, and trauma.
