The sensory and motor nerve conduction velocities, latencies, and amplitudes were recorded.
This brings the current to nearby motor nerve structures that stimulate contraction once the action potential is reached.
Motor nerve conduction velocity (MCV), CMAP amplitude and distal motor latency (DML) were determined in the motor nerves.
They hypothesized that activation of Transient Receptor Potential or so-called TRP ion channels in the sensory nerves of the oropharynx and upper GI tract could reduce the hyperactivity of the motor nerves that sustain a cramp.
The quotient between the fourth ([T.sub.4]) and first ([T.sub.1]) muscular tensions generated by train-of-four (TOF) stimulus (2.00 Hz during 2.00 s) applied on motor nerve is [TOF.sub.ratio] (T4/T1).
High arches and clawed toes could indicate motor nerve damage.
All the clinical tests were performed for bilateral sensory (ulnar, median and sural) as well as motor nerves (ulnar, median, common peroneal and posterior tibial).
With normal ageing, the nervous system loses motor nerves which command the muscles to work, leading to reduced muscle mass and less strength.
Motor nerve conduction velocities (NCV), distal latencies (DL), and compound muscle action potentials (CMAP) of the median, ulnar peroneal, and tibial nerves were evaluated for testing the motor nerves.
The device recruits specific motor nerves by targeting muscle fibers that cannot be reached through traditional workouts and training.
The term motor neurone disease describes a group of related diseases affecting the motor nerves or neurones in the brain and spinal cord, which pass messages to the muscles telling them what to do.
