Tonight, I have a question, why throughout life, nerve cells cannot divide? R nThank you very much for the answers and responses.
Hi, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com.
The smallest part of a nerve is called a neuron or nerve cell. Besides nerve cells there are also supporting cells. This collection of nerve cells and supporting cells forms the nervous system. In general there are two nervous systems, namely the central nervous system (CNS) and the peripheral nervous system (SST). In contrast to SST, the CNS cannot regenerate or divide to multiply, because it does not have neurolema and centrosomes. So that if there is damage, it will be eaten and replaced by supporting cells.
