damping of muscle response resulting from application of a series of rapidly repeated stimuli to the motor nerve where less frequent stimulation produces muscle response.

Wedensky effect - a relatively long enhancing effect following application of a maximal shock or stimulus to a neuromuscular preparation.

Wedensky inhibition - inhibition of muscle response as a result of a series of rapidly repeated stimuli to the motor nerve.
