cell differentiation??

Post by marianne » Thu Apr 06, 2006 12:56 pm

Does anyone know how to measure the length of axones? Is there a technique that is usually used to do that? Or do you know any specific markers (protein) in the axones that I could use to visualize the axones?
Thanks a lot for your help! :D

Hint: myelin.
But you can just measure the nerve.
