nerve conduction

nerve con·duc·tion

the transmission of an impulse along a nerve fiber.

nerve con·duc·tion

(nĕrv kŏn-dŭk'shŭn)
The transmission of an impulse along a nerve fiber.

Nerve conduction

The speed and strength of a signal being transmitted by nerve cells. Testing these factors can reveal the nature of nerve injury, such as damage to nerve cells or to the protective myelin sheath.
