1. What is a function of myelin?
a. allows impulses to be passed along an axon at a rate that is hundreds of times faster than impulses passed along axons that are not covered with myelin
b. contains the usual cellular organelles (endoplasmic reticulum, Nissl Bodies, Golgi bodies, mitochondria, and pigment inclusions), with the exception of centrioles, which are necessary for mitosis
c. provide a large surface area for receipt of stimuli including heat, cold, touch, smell, hearing, vision, balance, hunger, and thirst
d. serves to inhibit nerve impulses to other neurons, muscles, or glands
