Electrophysiological features were studied longitudinally in the spontaneously diabetic insulin-dependent, BB-Wistar rat. These were correlated in time with the state of the patency of the protective barriers in peripheral nerves. Motor nerve conduction velocity was significantly slowed only 3 weeks after the onset of the diabetes. When ultrastructural changes began, the maximal conduction velocity was further diminished. The amplitudes of evoked muscle potentials and distal latencies were… CONTINUE READING
