Short Communication on Schwann Cells

Chandrahas D

Schwann cells (also spelled neurilemma cell) are a type of glial cells of the peripheral nervous system that help form the myelin sheath around the nerve fibers. Schwann cells are named after German physiologist Theodor Schwann, who discovered them in the 19th century. Schwann cells are derived from the neural crest and play crucial roles in the maintenance and regeneration of the motor and sensory neurons of the peripheral nervous system (PNS).
