Peripheral nerves of a mouse embryo
Unlike the brain and spinal cord that are housed in protective bone, peripheral nerves connect regions of the body to the central nervous system like telephone cables. Peripheral nerves relay movement information from the brain to the muscles, for example, or sensory information from the skin to the brain. Remarkably, and also different from the brain and spinal cord, peripheral nerves have a tremendous capacity to regenerate when injured. Severed peripheral nerves grow about 1 mm per day (about an inch per month) until the two severed ends reconnect and innervate a once paralyzed muscle.
