Flexion of the fingers was monitored for the median nerve; separation of fingers for ulnar nerve; extension of the forearm for radial nerve; and flexion of the forearm for the musculocutaneus nerve function.
Motor response of the musculocutaneus nerve was recorded from the biceps muscle, the axillary nerve from the deltoid muscle, and the radial nerve from the triceps muscle by using superficial electrodes.
