 Axon - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
An axon, or nerve fiber, is a long slender projection of a nerve cell, or neuron, that conducts electrical impulses away from the neuron's cell body or soma.
In vertebrates, the axons of many neurons are sheathed in myelin, which is formed by either of two types of glial cells: Schwann cells ensheathing peripheral neurons and oligodendrocytes insulating those of the central nervous system.
Growing axons move through their environment via the growth cone, which is at the tip of the axon.

 Axon guidance - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Axon guidance (also called axon pathfinding) is a subfield of neural development concerning the process by which neurons send out axons to reach the correct targets.
Axons often follow very precise paths in the nervous system, and how they manage to find their way so accurately remains a major puzzle.
Growing axons have a highly motile structure at the growing tip called the growth cone, which "sniffs out" the extracellular environment for signals that instruct the axon which way to grow.

Sue Axon, of Baguley, Manchester, wants parents to be told if a girl under the age of 16 is referred for an abortion.
The High Court was told that Mrs Axon, 50, regretted undergoing a termination herself 20 years ago which caused her "guilt, shame and depression".
Mr Havers said Mrs Axon believed that a parent should be involved in "helping her daughters in their early teenage years to make wise decisions as to matters such as contraception, and, if it came to it, abortion".

 Trucking Down the Axon
Study of the axon (the long extension of a neuron that conducts impulses away from the nerve cell body) actually began a century ago.
At the MBL and Yale University, Ross G. Harrison took the Doctrine a step further during the early 1900's, by culturing neurons and proving that the axon is an outgrowth of the nerve cell itself, not a separate entity as previously thought.
Experiments to elucidate further the properties of the axon continued, but it wasn't until 1948, with the description by P. Weiss and H. Hiscoe of what would later be termed slow axonal transport, that study of the movement of material through axon began.

The Axon of a neuron is a singular fiber that carries information away from the soma to the synaptic sites of other neurons (dendrites and somas), muscles, or glands.
The axon is considerably thicker and longer than the dendrites of a neuron.
Larger neurons have a markedly expanded region at the initial end of the axon.

 How does an axon grow? -- Goldberg 17 (8): 941 -- Genes and Development
Axons are generally on the scale of 1 µm thick and some are more than 1 m long, making neurons the largest cells in the body
Axon growth, like an automobile, requires (A) the supply of building blocks (gasoline); as well as (B) cycling filaments in the growth cone (the running motor); (C) connections between growth cone filaments and the growth substrate (the clutch); and (D) a way to translate external, directional cues into pathfinding decisions (the steering wheel).
For example, in the classic experiments dissociating cellular survival from axon growth, neurotrophins such as NGF added to the axon or cell body compartments support neuronal survival, but the neurotrophin must be added specifically to the axon compartment to support the survival and growth of the axons themselves (see text).
