A technique is described for isolating peripheral nerve fibres by teasing and subsequently examining them by light and electron microscopy. The technique was applied to the study of unusual swollen fibres observed central to the lesion in transected nerves in rats. These were shown to be the result of the demyelination of already remyelinated segments of the fibre.
