Wallerian Degeneration - Is Axonal Degeneration without local Inflammation and before local DeMyelination that results from a distal injury to the same Axon. Wallerian Degeneration commonly occurs, sometime after a distant Axonal part has been severed.

White Matter - The common term for Myelin and/or the Medullary Body and consists of: Myelinated Axons, and supporting cells (Astrocytes). The Medullary Body is the Cerebrum's deep interior (includes the Corpus Callosum, surrounds the Basal Ganglia, and parts of the Ventricles).

- Various other Nerve Pathways (ie; Cerebral Peduncles, CorticoSpinal Tract, and Medial Fasciculus Longitudinal) interconnect the entire Brain to the Spinal Cord).

- White Matter constitutes a larger percentage of the Central Nervous System (CNS) than Neurons (Gray Matter) and DeMyelination, damage to Neurons, their Axons, or Myelin cause MS Symptoms. #01, #23

Rainbow Line

This is still very much a work in progress, so please overlook the construction mess and drop me a line or two. I'll probably always be adding on new information, sites, and thoughts.

So, if you would like me to post some of your thinking here, just let me know. Together there is much we can accomplish.
