his structure shown, which is about 1.5 micrometers wide, is an electron microscopic and tomographic reconstruction of a node of Ranvier. These nodes are small, specialized sites found at intervals along the thin nerve processes of all vertebrate animals. They reamplify nerve impulses, enabling transmission of information to distant targets such as nerve terminals on muscle or other neurons.
