Neuron myelin
The axons of some neurons are wrapped in a fatty material called myelin. Myelin acts as an electrical insulator. Axons with myelin are capable of carrying information at much faster speeds than unmyelinated axons. In this illustration of a neuron, the myelin wrapping the axon is labelled in green.
