Odiete (1978) illustrated in this species a sort of concentrically lamellar figures that were deemed as myelinated axons (but this was only in small-sized ones), stating, however, that most axons entering the medulla were typical unmyelinated.
The physical methods counter-irritate and are based on the "Gate Control" theory that suggests that noxious sensation carried on unmyelinated C fibers can be masked by simultaneous activation of nerve fibers that conduct non-noxious stimuli.
Nerve histopathology of the different forms of FAP is similar showing fiber-length-dependent polyneuropathy, loss of myelinated nerves, particularly small myelinated and unmyelinated nerve fibers.

Increased signal intensity on T2-weighted images and decreased signal intensity on T1-weighted ones are demonstrated in almost all patients with the exception being infants and neonates where T1-weighted images show enhancement due to the similar relaxation time of T1 and the unmyelinated brain [13].
Afferent innervation to the bladder arises from the dorsal root ganglia, and nerves supplying the bladder are primarily composed of small, myelinated A-S fibers and unmyelinated C fibers.
Histopathological findings associated with Q163X mutation include severe loss of myelinated axons, moderate loss of unmyelinated fibers, and onion bulb formations, with no evidence of axonal renewal (16).
A similar signal takes about 300 milliseconds on unmyelinated axons.
