Median sensory NCSs were performed using the antidromic technique; the recording electrode was placed over the palmar surface of the second digit and the nerve was stimulated from the wrist at 13 cm.
The recording electrode and grounding electrode was placed on the skin overlying the muscle supplied by the nerve.
As previously mentioned at first a conventional nerve conduction study was performed; according to it, distal median motor latency was obtained from abductor pollicis brevis muscle belly with stimulation at 8 cm proximal to it and for antidromic sensory latency from the third digit while stimulating the median nerve 7 cm and 14 cm proximal to the active recording electrode from midpalm and wrist crease, respectively.
Conduction velocities were determined with pairs of recording electrodes and a separate stimulating electrode placed a maximal available distance from the first recording electrode.
Using a similar recording electrode procedure as in the first study, Franklin and colleagues were able to measure positive and negative emotions in response to loud noises, either alone or after receiving a painful shock.
Thus, the resulting EMG signal reflects the sum of all action potentials within the pick-up area of the recording electrode, rather than the difference signal as with the bipolar electrode arrangement.
The recording of the compound motor action potential (CMAP) was done with the recording electrode on the belly of the abductor digiti minimi muscle and the reference electrode on a tendon or a bony surface.
Thirty corners of the network corresponded to the thirty recording electrode sites distributed symmetrically and regularly on the thorax.
Six subjects with pacemakers received stimulation of the left peroneal nerve at the left ankle and fibular head with the active surface recording electrode placed over the left extensor digitorum brevis muscle and stimulation of the left median nerve at the wrist and elbow with the active surface recording electrode placed over the left abductor pollicis brevis muscle.
neurons, glial cells, fiber tracts, cerebral spinal fluid, bone, muscle) before they reach the recording electrode placed on the scalp.
The electrical response is called compound muscle action potential (CMAP), which is the summated activity of muscle fibres in the region of recording electrode innervated by the nerve.
