"Ultimately, oligodendrocytes are like electrical tape for wires; they make sure that the electric current is kept within the nerve cell and moves down the wire to its intended target. Additionally if oligodendrocytes degrade within the nervous system, nerve cells are unable to transport electrical messages to their respective targets. This condition of degradation is known as Multiple Sclerosis (MS) in humans."
