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
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?
The effect of the axon diameter on conduction velocity is that it increases the conduction velocity, the larger the diameter.
The conduction ve...
