This study is one of a series addressing the mechanisms involved in the production of neural damage caused by continuous, prolonged electrical stimulation of peripheral nerve. It has been previously shown that sustained, high frequency electrical stimulation of the cat's peroneal nerve may cause irreversible neural damage in the form of axonal degeneration of the large myelinated fibres. In this study we demonstrate that blocking the action potentials on most of the nerve fibres with local… CONTINUE READING
