Neuronal Organelles in Motion 147
Discovery and Development of the Concept of
Fast and Slow Components of Axonal Transport 147
The size and extent of many neurons presents a
special set of challenges 147
Fast and slow components of axonal transport
differ in both their constituents and their rates 148
Features of fast axonal transport demonstrated by
biochemical and pharmacological approaches are
apparent from video images 151
