Our original finding of the surprising effect of the unilateral sciatic nerve injury on the contralateral nerve by 2H double quantum filtered NMR, is now confirmed by the histological finding. The comparison of the NMR and the histology helps us in the assignment of the satellites with the quadrupolar splittings of 200 and 500 Hz to the water of the endoneurium and the myelin respectively.
