The central motor pathways were studied with the technique of percutaneous electrical stimulation of the central nervous system in 40 normal volunteers. There were no significant differences between the right and left sides, or between males and females. A linear correlation between the cortical latency (Lcor) or the spinal latency (Lsp) and body height was observed, however, there was no correlation between the central conduction time (CCT) (Lcor-Lsp) and body height. Consequently, the CCT… CONTINUE READING
