Latency of the nictitating membrane response to periocular electrostimulation in unanesthetized rabbits.

Abstract

The latency of the nictitating membrane response (NMR) in rabbit (Oryctolagus cuniculus) to periocular electro-stimulation is a negative exponential function of stimulus current with an asymptote of approximately 17 msec. The NMR was recorded by means of a precision low-torque potentiometer like that employed in previous studies of NMR latency, and the… (More)
