An electrophysiological method is described for estimating the conduction velocity in the proximal segments (anterior horn cells to the knee) of the motor fibres of the deep peroneal nerve. The method utilizes large numbers of F-waves which are late muscle responses due to antidromically activated motoneurones. The results in 58 healthy subjects are(More)
The F-wave was used to estimate the fastest motor nerve conduction velocity (MNCV) along the proximal segment (spinal cord to knee) of the axons of the tibial nerve in 65 control subjects, 8 patients with diabetic polyneuropathy, and 4 patients with Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease. Terminal latencies and MNCV along the distal segment (knee to ankle) of the(More)
