Mechanism of anoxic conduction block in mammalian nerve.


The mechanism by which anoxia blocks impulse conduction was studied in isolated sciatic nerves from the rat. The desheathed nerve was mounted in a recording chamber, and the compound action potential (CAP) was measured at controlled temperature (23 and 37 degrees C). When the nerve was irrigated with nitrogenated Ringer's solution compound action potential… (More)
