Medical Definition of Neurofibrils

1. Filaments found in neurons, not necessarily neurofilaments in all cases and in the older literature fibrils are composed of both microtubules and neurofilaments. Originally used by light microscopists to describe much larger fibrils seen particularly well with silver staining methods.
