Unformatted text preview: lower than the A fiber because its diameter is smaller and it has less myelination than A fiber. 2. How did the conduction velocity in the C fiber compare with that in the B Fiber? How well did the results compare with your prediction? Your answer: The conductivity velocity in C fiber was slower than the B fiber; my prediction was correct. The C fiber was smaller and less myelinated than the B fiber, so it had a slower conduction velocity. 3. What is the effect of axon diameter on conduction velocity? Your answer: The effect of the axon diameter on conduction velocity is that it increases the conduction velocity, the larger the diameter. The conduction ve...
