H03 Nerve Conduction – MP36/35

h03data.gif

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.

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.

Programmable Stimulation System for E-Prime

The STMEPM Programmable Stimulation System for E-Prime allows a user to interface the STMISOLA Stimulator with E-Prime to control the stimulus frequency and stimulus intensity for real-time stimulus delivery changes based on a subject’s responses. It is also possible to hardcode the stimulus intensity levels in the presentation so that predefined stimulus levels are delivered […]
