Axonal function and activity-dependent excitability changes in myotonic dystrophy.

Abstract

To investigate peripheral nerve function and its potential contribution to symptoms of weakness in myotonic dystrophy type 1 (MD), nerve excitability was assessed in 12 MD patients. Compound muscle action potentials (CMAPs) were recorded at rest from abductor pollicis brevis (APB) following stimulation of the median nerve. Stimulus-response behavior… (More)
