If you ever need someone to nerd out over heart stuff with, I’d be happy to oblige. XD
We’ll have to talk about the conducting system sometime and about how amazing it is that that developed to ensure simultaneous contraction of all the myocardiocytes. It’s my favorite thing about the heart.
Oh! Or the hormones it can secrete!
oligodendrocytes are the bomb, man. they’re essentially bullhorns made out of hugs.
Oligodendrocytes and Schwann cells BLEW MY MIND. You are more likely to recover when a nerve is injured in your peripheral nervous system because it’s easier to overcome damaging the Schwann cells (since they cover only a small portion of each axon and go down it in a line) whereas in the central nervous system you have one oligodendrocyte covering multiple axons so taking out one of those damages more axons than damaging one or a few Schwann cells.
The brain is amazing.
