The brain and spinal cord communicates with what is occurring in the internal organs and limbs by nerve fibers where are like electrical wires with insulation (myelin) and the "copper" (axon). Within brain and spinal cord these nerves connect to other nerves via synapses on both axons and dendrites. A nerve can carry information regarding sensations, and ...Read more

Stingers: Is it healing from an injury, after surgery? A short answer is that nerves sprout new axons to establish a re connection once injured, and this could cause aberrant signalling until the sprouts have full functioning. The insulation (myelin) on a nerve also has to be built back up so after injury also, and until that happens the nerve is also not functioning properly. ...Read more

Membrane stabilizing medications and nerve stimulators can also be effective in select cases. ...Read more
