  • 1. The effects of low temperature on conduction in single myelinated and non‐myelinated axons of the feline saphenous nerve were examined and compared. Nerves were cooled by a conventional thermode, but thermal gradients were minimized by an insulating layer of agar‐saline gel over the nerve and the face of the thermode.
