Myelin is a fatty substance that covers neurons. Around your neurons is a myelin sheath (a layer of myelin) that helps increase the speed at which information can travel on the neurons. If you could look at a neuron you would see the sheath covering the axon of the neuron in a way that looks like a row of sausage links.
