Hello, I am trying to estimate the neural transmission speeds in the type-I and type-II axons of people. As I understand it they are dependent on diameter : Can anyone state a reference or estimate the axonal thickness of the following (preferably for people) : a] type-I (microns): 2.0 Gerbil, 1.75 mouse [1] b] type-II (microns): 0.5 Gerbil, 0.5 mouse [1] c] MOC (microns) : d] LOC (microns) : [1] (at)Article{Brown:1988, author = {Brown, M.C. and Berglund, A.M. and Kiang, N.Y. and Ryugo, D.K.}, title = {Central trajectories of type II spiral ganglion neurons}, journal = {The Journal of Comparative Neurology}, year = {1988}, volume = {278}, number = {4}, pages = {581-590}, month = {December} } thanks Matt -- WSOLA TimeScale Audio Mod : FFTw C++ : Vector Bass : Multimedia Time Code :
