  • INDIRECT ESTIMATION OF SPINAL-CORD CONDUCTION-VELOCITY IN MAN ELECTROENCEPHALOGRAPHY AND CLINICAL NEUROPHYSIOLOGY DORFMAN, L. J. 1977; 42 (1): 26-34

    Abstract:

    A method is described for deriving an indirect estimate of the velocity of impulse propagation in the spinal cord of intact man. The estimate is computed from measurements of motor and sensory nerve conduction velocity in the limbs, F-wave latencies, and the latencies of somatosensory evoked potentials. The mean estimated spinal cord conduction velocicy in normal subjects was found to be 55.1 m/sec, with a standard deviation of 9.9. This method appears to have potential application in the electrophysiological evaluation of patients with myelopathic disorders.
