The isolated sciatic nerve of the frog was used to assess the effects of the herbicide 2,4-dichlorophenoxyacetic acid (2,4-D) on the peripheral nervous system. For each experiment, both sciatic nerves were used. The evoked compound action potentials of the nerves were monitored for over 48 h as an indication of their viability. The viability of nerve incubated in control saline was compared to the viability of the nerve incubated in saline where 2,4-D was diluted. The minimum effective… CONTINUE READING
