Description:

These exercises are taken from a vertebrate physiology course, and use either a human subject or a dissected frog, thus providing relatively simply alternatives that may suit your needs. Nerve conduction velocity can be measured in the frog sciatic nerve with recordings of the biphasic action potential on the outside of the nerve trunk. Absolute and relative refractory periods can also be determined. Conduction velocity in the human can be obtained from electromyograms taken from the fourth and fifth fingers following stimulation of the ulnar nerve.
