Myelin is an insulating layer that forms around nerves, including those in the brain and spinal cord. It is made up of protein and fatty substances.
The purpose of the myelin sheath is to allow impulses to transmit quickly and efficiently along the nerve cells. If myelin is damaged, the impulses slow down. This can cause diseases such as multiple sclerosis.
The fatty tissue surrounding the axon of a neuron is called myelin.
Fatty tissue is also called as lipomas. Lipomas is a growth of fatty tissue that slowly develops just under your skin. The causes for the fatty tissues are unknown.
It can be called brain tissue, cerebral tissue or neural tissue (although the latter phrase can refer to nerve tissue anywhere in the body, and not just in the brain).
Heart, liver, lungs, kidneys... all organs basicly except the brain, which is fatty tissue.
Tay Sacks disease is a genetic disease in lipid is accumulated in brain .It also called lysosomal storage disease .
The fatty tissue is called the myelin sheath (or just myelin), the part of the neurone it covers is the axon.
Pretty sure it's called Adipose tissue (fatty composition)
In a typical neuron, sheaths of fatty tissue are called the Myelin sheath. The myelin sheath surrounds parts of the axon of a nerve cell which speeds up neurotransmitters.
Brain tissue is called gray matter because it is gray.
Adipose tissue is the medical term meaning fatty tissue. Adipose tissue is a type of connective tissue.
The tissue is in the form of a sheath and is called myelin.
There is no fatty layer above the dermis. The epidermis is above the dermis. Below the dermis is the fatty layer (adipose tissue) that is called the hypodermis, or the superficial fascia.
The tissue that stretches is called connective tissue. In the human body, connective tissue is present everywhere except in the brain.

THC stores in the organs that contain the most fatty tissue. eg. The reproductive organs (ovaries, testicle's) and the brain.
Yes, fatty tissue is in the nervous system. Without fatty tissue being in the nervous system, you may be a target for serious medical problems that could be fatal.
Brain tissue is made up largely of cells called neurons. These cells have a special system of communication. The brain is also heavy in blood vessels.
The Spinal Cord is the thick column of nerve tissue that links the brain to most of the nerves.
Tay-Sachs disease is a hereditary illness. The body does not make a molecule that is required to break down fatty substances in the body, called gangliosides. The gangliosides collect in the nervous tissue, resulting in damage to the brain and nerves.
A bruise to the brain is also called a brain contusion, and usually accompanies a concussion.
I don't understand your question. The brain contains no bones, it is a mixture of nerves and fatty tissue (myelin). It is wrapped in a protective shell of bone called the skull. DNA has no bones, it is a macromolecule. It is present in all cells: e.g. nerve, bone, fat, muscle. Perhaps you could clarify your question and ask it again.
what tipe of tissue is in the brain
Nerve cells called neurons sends messages from brain to body along fibers called axons.
No. The brain is made up of nervous tissue, which is composed of specialized cells called neurons. Muscle tissue is composed of myocytes, or "muscle cells", which have a different organization, structure and function than nervous tissue.
It is still nerve tissue but it is what is called grey matter
A fatty acid.
Yes, adipose tissue is fat tissue.
It is called the 'dura mater'.
Lesion where do u go to school at ?
to kkep you warm tissue is an insulater
Protein helps create and build healthy body tissue. Protein also has an array of amino acids and essential fatty acids that help with brain function.
Why don't you have to worry about cutting into the sclera when you are removing the extrinsic muscles and fatty tissue?
Because the sclera is more harder than the muscles and the fatty tissue.
Only the brain will have brain tissue
The inward folds of cerebral tissue are called sulci. These are narrow fissures that separate adjacent convolutions of the brain.
Adipose tissue stores fat for insulation.
It can be ...it is fatty tissue...benign or malignant.
brain tissue LOL this is true
You have nervous tissue mainly found in your brain. This tissue originates from ectoderm.
What is neuroglial cells that form the fatty myelin sheath on the neurons of the brain and spinal cord called?
Schwann cells (PNS)
epithelial is the major tissue also made of nervous tissue and fatty tissue
cancer cells that break through the wall of the milk ducts and spread into the fatty tissue. (also called infiltrating)
Mostly neurons and neuroglia. There is also cerebral spinal fluid (CSF), and the covering of connective tissue called meninges.
In the brain, they are called glial cells.
The reason that brain tissue is soft is because that is how God the creator chose to design it. Brain tissue is soft because it has the skull to protect it.
Insulating tissue that provides warmth.
