The aim of this study was to document the effect of tramadol as an opioid on individual fibers of rat sciatic nerve. To accomplish this objective, compound action potentials (CAPs) were recorded from isolated nerves treated with tramadol from five different concentration levels. Then recorded CAPs and the control group were analyzed by numerical methods(More)
Nerve conduction velocity distribution (CVD) is a very useful tool to examine the state and function of nerves. Only one record of compound action potential (CAP) may be sufficient to determine the CVD if the shape functions of the single fiber action potentials (SFAP) of fibers are known. Otherwise, CAP recordings from different locations are necessary to(More)
Finger-tapping test is extensively employed to assess motor asymmetry in brain damaged patients and also to study the relationship between handedness and performance in normal subjects. The aim of this study was to develop a computer based finger-tapping system that could provide quantitative measures of finger-tapping performance. The system is designed to(More)
In this study, the distribution of peroneal-nerve conduction velocity was studied in 17 normal subjects, using the collision method. Paired supramaximal stimuli with predetermined interstimulus intervals (ISI) were applied at distal and proximal points of peroneal nerve and the resultant compound muscle action potentials (CMAPs) were recorded. The change in(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIM The aim of this randomized double blind placebo controlled study was to investigate the effectiveness and the safety of venlafaxine XR 75 and 150 mg on ongoing pain and on quantitative sensory tests in 60 patients with neuropathic pain for 8 weeks. METHODS Evaluation parameters consisted of ongoing pain intensity (VAS), patient(More)
In order to get early information on the functional state of smaller myelinated fibers this article investigated the applicability of conduction velocity distribution on compound action potential recorded in experimentally demyelinated frog sciatic nerve. Conduction velocity distribution histograms were estimated by using the mathematical model the authors(More)
Collegenase is widely used in the process of teasing a nerve in order to perform single fiber action potential (SFAP) recordings. In this study, the effects of collagenase on nerve conduction parameters were investigated. To accomplish this, normal compound action potentials (nCAPs) were recorded from isolated frog sciatic nerve at various distances using(More)
Gender differences, either with the structural or through with hormones, dictate how the corresponding organ or organ system responses to physiological signals. Current study aims to investigate gender dependent differences in conduction related parameters of rat sciatic nerve. Compound action potentials (CAP) were recorded via suction electrode whereas the(More)
Successive voluntary motor movement involves a number of physiological mechanisms and may reflect motor skill development and neuromuscular fatigue. In this study, the temporal behavior of finger tapping was investigated in relation to motor skills and fatigue by using a long-term computer-based test. The finger-tapping performances of 29 healthy male(More)
