Conduction velocity increase:
1) passive signal spread
2) active signal propagation
1) increases linearly to fiber diameter, the potential is decaying exponentially
2) increases with the square root of the fiber diameter

In myelinated fibers there is a LINEAR relationship between axon diameter and conduction velocity!!!
