I know that the the bigger the neuron's diameter is, the faster the neuron signal is transmitted. This makes sense according to the proportionality of resistance to the inverse of area and thus, in physics, there is lower resistance in wires that have bigger diameters (cross-sectional areas). I can imagine that this is the same logic for our neurons as well because they are like wires. I also know that the more myelinated a neuron is, the faster the neuron signal travels too because myelination acts as an insulation that reduces resistance in signal transmission.
But then, my question is: does the number of nodes matter and affect the rate at which a neural signal is transmitted? Can you please help explain why or why not? Let's say for example, that two neurons have same amount of diameter and myelinated sheaths hypothetically, but one of them has more nodes. Does that number of nodes of ranvier make the saltatory conduction faster?
