Caption: Damaged myelin in MS. Computer artwork comparing a healthy myelinated nerve fibre (right) with one from a person with Multiple Sclerosis (MS, left). Myelin sheathes (silver) wrap around nerve fibres and help propagate nerve impulses. In MS, they become damaged, resulting in varied symptoms, from fatigue and weakness, to blindness and loss of mobility.
