The Biology of Schwann Cells: Development, Differentiation and Immunomodulation
It is now over 200 years since Theodore Schwann first described the cell which bears his name. Such early descriptions of nervous system components were done without the powerful microscopes we have today, yet Schwann and Ramon Y. Cajal made foundation observations which still stand. Cajal’s papers, especially, show the...
