The peri-stimulus time histogram is a valuable tool for evaluating neural connections in humans. To detect the degree to which a conditioning stimulus to a sensory nerve modulates motor neuron activity, a histogram of motor unit spike intervals after a conditioning stimulus is measured. This histogram allows the effect of the conditioning stimulus to be visualised. By comparison with a reference histogram of motor unit spike intervals after a sham stimulus, the noise caused by spontaneous… CONTINUE READING
