Term Information [More information on central nervous system myelination]

Accession
GO:0022010
Name
central nervous system myelination
Ontology
biological_process
Synonyms
myelination in central nervous system
Definition
The process in which neuronal axons and dendrites become coated with a segmented lipid-rich sheath (myelin) to enable faster and more energetically efficient conduction of electrical impulses. The sheath is formed by the cell membranes of oligodendrocytes in the central nervous system. Adjacent myelin segments are separated by a non-myelinated stretch of axon called a node of Ranvier.
