Each branch connects the neuron with another neuron. At the other end of the neuron is an axon, a long hair-like extension that carries messages away from the cell body to another neuron. The axons of many neurons are covered by a fatty insulating layer known as a myelin sheath. The sheath protects and insulates the nerve fibres and increases the rate of transmission of the nerve impulses. The myelin sheath is formed by many individual cells, which look like cylinders with tiny gaps between each cylinder.
