H03 Nerve Conduction – MP36/35

This BSL PRO lesson describes hardware and software setup of the BSL PRO System to record and measure nerve conduction velocity along the ulnar nerve of a human subject. Stimulation can be delivered with the STMHUM if using an MP36 and BSL 4.1 or greater, or with BSLSTMA/B if using an MP35 or earlier software releases. Choose the lesson procedure and template that corresponds with your hardware and software.

Experimental Objectives

  1. To record a charge from the stimulus electrodes to recording electrodes.
  2. To observe the Threshold, Maximal and Supra-Maximal response levels.
  3. To determine nerve conduction velocity along the ulnar nerve.

Tasks Performed by the Student

Subject will stimulate the nerve at increasing and decreasing increments to obtain responses at the recording electrodes.
