1. Using microneurography with a conventional monopolar electrode, the action potentials of ten myelinated axons in the peripheral nerves of human subjects were followed while they developed conduction block. 2. The action potentials had initially (n = 6) or developed (n = 4) a positive double-peaked morphology. The time interval between the two positive peaks represents the conduction time across the impaled internode. 3. When the interpeak interval was < 500 micros, conduction across the site… CONTINUE READING
