Diagram of longitudinal sections of medullated nerve fibers.
Latin segmentum internodale
subject #183 727
Medullated nerve fibers stained with silver nitrate.
The portion of nerve fiber between two
Nodes of Ranvier is called an internodal segment (or internode). The neurolemma or primitive sheath is not interrupted at the nodes, but passes over them as a continuous membrane.
