Adult Human Cochlea Nerve Glia cartoon

Schematic illustration of the peripheral glial cells in the adult human cochlea. Satellite glial cells (green) envelop all spiral ganglion neuron (SGN) cell bodies. Non-myelinating Schwann cells (light blue) ensheath both the central and peripheral processes of the type II SGNs (yellow) that innervate the outer hair cells (OHC). Myelinating Schwann cells (dark blue) ensheath and myelinate both processes of the type I SGNs (red) that innervate the inner hair cells (IHC). Beyond the habenula perforata, in the organ of Corti, neither Schwann cell types ensheath the most distal part of the peripheral processes of type I and type II SGNs.
