Solution: How does signal conduction in myelinated axons differ from signal conduction in unmyelinated axons?

Problem

How does signal conduction in myelinated axons differ from signal conduction in unmyelinated axons?

Solution

Myelin sheath covers the axon and serves as electrical insulator that aids in the transmission of nerve impulses. Myelinated axons mean that the axons are covered with myelin sheath while unmyelinated axons  don't have myelin sheath.
